A satisfying collection of Jewish comfort food with classic dishes and modern variations.
Comfort food varies from person to person, family to family, region to region. As the author of Modern Jewish Baker and editor of The Nosher, Shannon Sarna has always wanted to tell the story of the Jewish people through food and continues to do so here in her latest book. Modern Jewish Comfort Food showcases recipes and variations that have shaped Jewish cuisine from around the world—including immigration waves from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, New York City, and beyond.
