Description

Cookbooks, social histories, encyclopedias, websites and a novel that celebrate and explore Jewish culinary traditions in New York and further afield. We were originally inspired to create this list when Laura Silver spoke about "The Life and Times of the Knish " at the Mid-Manhattan Library on August 7, 2012 in conjunction with NYPL’s “Lunch Hour NYC” exhibition. In December 2013 we updated the list for Chef Einat Admony's conversation with food writer Leah Koenig on December 18, 2013, adding the Balaboosta cookbook and a few other recent items related to Jewish food and cooking. Check out the link to the panel discussion, "Where Have All the Delis Gone?"
