A Kosher Cookbook that Reinvigorates Family Recipes and Embraces Our Culinary Future

Jerry Seinfeld's fictional dentist Tim Whatley famously converted to Judaism "for the jokes," but if there's one thing that defines Jewish culture as much as humor it's food.

Offering time-tested culinary treasures from her grandmother's recipe box, plus more than 80 original recipes of Miri's own, this kosher cookbook includes Ashkenazi favorites such as babka, brisket, and matzo ball soup, and more global dishes, from za'atar pita chips and forbidden rice bowls to watermelon gazpacho and Persian chicken stew.

  • A kosher cookbook with recipe labels in accordance with a kosher diet
