Reviews

"Amusing, yet serious."
--New York Times

"[A] love letter--to food, family, faith and identity, and the deliciously tangled way they come together."
--NPR's The Salt

"Wholly original. . . . The whimsical, hilarious, nostalgic and, at times, serious collection reminds me of a boisterous dinner party with all your favorite foodies and chefs coming together against the backdrop of a laid-back panel on their experiences with Jewish food. . . . A real treat."
--Hadassah

"A perfect gift for this Passover--gorgeous and funny and well written. . . . The 100 Most Jewish Foods is also unafraid of the ways in which food can be a window into history, culture, and politics."
--Bklyner

"An entertaining choice for anyone interested in how food reflects a people and helps connect them to shared traditions."
--Baton Rouge Advocate

"The most culturally and historically significant Jewish foods. . . . Yes, it's highly debatable--that's the point."
--Epicurious

"Downright entertaining . . . the most interesting cookbook we've read this year."
--Fleishigs Magazine

"You, me, your grandparents, your nosy neighbors and your jealous non-Jewish foodie friends all need to pick up a copy of The 100 Most Jewish Foods: A Highly Debatable List. . . . This ain't just a cookbook. It's also a history lesson, a culinary compendium and a gorgeously photographed gourmet grab bag. By dissecting various meals or foodstuffs, this book has captured the very essence of what it means to be Jewish."
--Baltimore Jewish Living

"You don't have to be Jewish to love The 100 Most Jewish Foods. . . . Funny, emotional, memorable, and filled with gemutlichkeit, this is a book for any reason and all seasons."
--Booklist, starred review

"This entertaining and informative reference brings the rich traditions of Jewish foods to life."
--Publishers Weekly
