Review; Jew-ish: A Cookbook: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch by Jake Cohen

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of Jew-ish: A Cookbook: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch by Jake Cohen through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
When you think of Jewish food, a few classics come to mind: chicken soup with matzo balls, challah, maybe a babka if you’re feeling adventurous. But as food writer and nice Jewish boy Jake Cohen demonstrates in this stunning debut cookbook, Jewish food can be so much more. In Jew-ish, he reinvents the food of his Ashkenazi heritage and draws inspiration from his husband’s Persian-Iraqi traditions to offer recipes that are modern, fresh, and enticing for a whole new generation of readers. Imagine the components of an everything bagel wrapped into a flaky galette and latkes dyed vibrant yellow with saffron for a Persian spin on the potato pancake, plus best-ever hybrid desserts like Macaroon Brownies and Pumpkin Spice Babka! From elevated, yet approachable classics like Jake’s Perfect Challah, Roasted Tomato Brisket, Short Rib Cholent, and Iraqi Beet Kubbeh Soup to innovative creations like Cacio e Pepe Rugelach, Sabich Bagel Sandwiches, and Matzo Tiramisu, Jew-ish is a brilliant collection of delicious recipes, but it’s also much more than that. As Jake reconciles ancient traditions with our modern times, his recipes become a celebration of a rich and vibrant history, a love story of blending cultures, and an invitation to gather around the table and create new memories with family, friends, and loved ones.

My Thoughts on the Book
Jew-ish was a neat cookbook for those of us who aren't quite familiar with Jewish food. I may not be familiar with all the ingredients, but there were still several recipes I'd love to try. The book has sections, which makes it easy to find whatever you're looking for and there were some amazing food photos in it as well.
