    French Onion Brisket A keeper - permanent addition to the holiday table - It was an easy make ahead with deep flavor. Adding Calvados is a genius touch.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Everything bagel galette

    • Jane on September 27, 2021

      This would be fabulous for an entertaining brunch but I made it all for me (to be eaten over several breakfasts and lunches). It's my favorite bagel filling in tart form. In case you are wondering the dough is a flaky pastry not bagel-like at all - the title comes from Everything bagel seasoning. It's not at all hard to do and the result really is wonderful.

    • Kinhawaii on November 04, 2021

      Delicious! Halved the dough & ended up with a 10-11” galette. Couldn’t find heirloom tomatoes in November so used plum tomatoes.

    • pattyatbryce on January 23, 2022

      For just 2 of us, I'd make a half recipe next time. And there definitely be a next time. Really yummy.

  • Potato-leek bourekas

    • darcie_b on March 29, 2022

      If you use purchased puff pastry, this comes together quickly and will satisfy the carb lovers in your house.

  • Persian beef, herb, and kidney bean stew (Khoresh-e ghormeh sabzi)

    • darcie_b on December 02, 2021

      The fenugreek makes this dish - unexpected but delicious.

  • Salted chocolate-cardamom cookies

    • darcie_b on March 29, 2022

      Delicious cookies - the cardamom was subtle, and the olive oil complemented all the other flavors well. If you want the cookies chewy, watch the baking time and don't go too far.

  • Fancy mushroom kasha varnishkes

    • bching on March 17, 2021

      This was a labor-intensive version of the dish and overwhelmed by the amount of pasta. No point in using fancy mushrooms if they have to compete with all the blandness.

  • Sautéed asparagus with apricot and lemon

    • Melissa_427 on May 19, 2021

      Such a tasty surprise. I didn't have apricot preserves on hand so substituted peach preserves and that was sufficiently delicious!

  • Citrus and poppy seed pancakes

    • Melissa_427 on February 13, 2022

      Really delicious! I was a little unsure about the citrus cream but it was a lovely addition!

  • You can go your own way: babka edition

    • Melissa_427 on May 13, 2022

      I've been wanting to make babka for years and no wonder... it's delicious and stunning in presentation. I did the chocolate-tahini filling. There was more than enough so I polished a little off by the spoonful. This makes two loaves, so I opted to put one in the freezer for later since there are only two of us, can't wait to have another loaf of this stunning and delicious bread!

  • Sour cherry rice pudding

    • sayeater on July 10, 2022

      Liked the combination of flavors and textures. The rice pudding was already thick before adding the cornstarch slurry so I debated adding it but did anyway. After it cooled it had the consistency of cooked rice so definitely needs milk to thin out leftovers. Next time would leave it out. Pistachios added a nice crunch and flavor so don't skip. Overall a worthy use of the small precious amount of local sour cherries I was able to get a hold of.

Publishers Text

These are not your Jewish grandmother's recipes! Jake Cohen, editorial director of the wildly popular Feedfeed and nice Jewish boy, has been hosting Friday night Shabbat dinners for the past few years and reinventing beloved (but sometimes outdated) recipes from his culture along the way. The result is Jew-ish, an innovative take on classic Jewish recipes that was created with the modern millennial in mind, both experienced and novice home cooks looking for elevated versions of old-school favorites. Imagine kugel turned savory with the flavors of spinach-artichoke dip and latkes dyed vibrant yellow with saffron for a Persian spin on the potato pancake, plus best-ever hybrid desserts like Macaroon Brownies and Pumpkin Spice Babka! Cooks and hosts will find helpful tips and tricks throughout, gleaned from personal stories told in a fresh voice that is uniquely Jake Cohen’s.
