When you think of Jewish food, a few classics come to mind: chicken soup with matzo balls, challah, and maybe a babka if you’re feeling adventurous. But as food writer and nice Jewish boy Jake Cohen demonstrates in this stunning debut cookbook, Jewish food can be so much more. A brilliantly modern take on Jewish culinary traditions for a new generation of readers, from a bright new star in the culinary world, join us as Jake demonstrates how to make his famous “Crispy Chicken Thighs with Tzimmes”—just in time for the High Holidays!

In Jew-ish, Jake reinvents the food of his Ashkenazi heritage and draws inspiration from his husband’s Persian-Iraqi traditions to offer recipes that are modern, fresh, and enticing for a whole new generation of readers. As Jake reconciles ancient traditions with our modern times, his recipes become a celebration of rich and vibrant history, a love story of blending cultures, and an invitation to gather around the table and create new memories with family.
