The Mile End Cookbook: (Hardcover) by Bernamoff, Noah
Jewish cooking has never been so inspiring--and it's never, until now, been cool or so on trend. Written and designed with lovers of Jewish comfort food and foodies in mind, here is a cookbook that puts a young spin on an old cuisine, featuring an artisanal approach to traditional Jewish fare, with 100 recipes for comfort-food classics.
The Mile End Cookbook includes modern recipes for food that is thought of as "traditional bubbe" food but is really great American comfort fare. For example, there's brisket, homemade borscht, and, of course, potato pancakes. But there is also information on how to smoke your own meat, bake challah, and prepare quick and easy pickles. Noah Bernamoff and Rae Cohen, the young proprietors of Mile End, where New Yorkers and tourists alike line up for hours, have a mission: to make sure that these traditional recipes stay relevant to Jewish and American culture. They have applied a higher set of culinary standards (like not overcooking!) to the beloved foods of their childhood, and the result is easy, gourmet, and modern cooking. The Mile End Cookbook is a comprehensive guide to the art of new Jewish cooking.
