Reviews for The Jewish Cookbook

Leah Koenig stepped up to the proverbial plate to provide a definitive delve into the art of Jewish cookery in this blue-hued bumper-sized beauty by Phaidon. The result is a 400 recipe-strong romp that plucks prandial delights from Bubba's back-catalogue and from Manhattan to the Middle East. Ideal fodder for those looking to learn their kibbeh from their knish. -Monocle weekly newsletter
