About Jew-ish:

A brilliantly modern take on Jewish culinary traditions for a new generation of readers, from a bright new star in the culinary world.

When you think of Jewish food, a few classics come to mind: chicken soup with matzo balls, challah, 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.  

In Jew-ish, he 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. Imagine the components of an everything bagel wrapped into a flaky galette latkes dyed vibrant yellow with saffron for a Persian spin on the potato pancake, best-ever hybrid desserts like Macaroon Brownies and Pumpkin Spice Babka! Jew-ish features elevated, yet approachable classics along with innovative creations, such as: 

  • Jake’s Perfect Challah 
  • Roasted Tomato Brisket 
  • Short Rib Cholent 
  • Iraqi Beet Kubbeh Soup 
  • Cacio e Pepe Rugelach 
  • Sabich Bagel Sandwiches, and
  • Matzo Tiramisu. 

Jew-ish is a brilliant collection of delicious recipes, but it’s much more than that. As Jake reconciles ancient traditions with our modern times, his recipes become a celebration of a rich and vibrant history, a love story of blending cultures, and an invitation to gather around the table and create new memories with family, friends, and loved ones. 

Jake Cohen is a NYT Bestselling cookbook author and nice Jewish boy from NYC. A former food staffer at Saveur, food editor of Tasting Table, restaurant critic of Time Out New York, and editorial director of the Feedfeed. When he isn’t contributing to outlets like Food Network Kitchen, Food52, and Food & Wine, he’s posting challah-braiding videos and recipes on his Instagram and TikTok (@jakecohen). JEW-ISH is his first cookbook. He lives in NYC with his husband, Alex.
