The Modern Jewish Table: 100 Kosher Recipes from around the Globe by Tracey Fine, Georgie Tarn

Strap on your apron, reinvent tradition, and fill your Jewish kitchen with global flavors.

The Modern Jewish Table is the new, essential kosher cookbook for every Jewish home, whether you are a reluctant cook or a dedicated balabusta. Bringing their fun, upbeat, and infectious brand of energy to the kitchen, self-proclaimed Jewish Princesses Tracey Fine and Georgie Tarn don their high heels and aprons to revamp the kosher kitchen and raise the culinary bar. It’s no longer just chopped liver, chicken soup, and matzo bread; instead, learn to make Mock Chopped Liver, Sephardi Saffron Chicken Soup, and Princess Pitta Bread!

Writing from the point of view of the average home cook, the Jewish Princesses dish out their witty know-how and inspire amateur cooks to create simple and hip recipes, with all the short cuts included, even as they entice “professional” home cooks to revitalize traditional Jewish fare with uniquely global flavors. Learn to make delightful pareve desserts and meals fit for a Passover feast, as well as:

• Street Food Gefilte Fish Bites
• Crème Fraiche Vegetable Latkes
• Cohen-Tucky Baked Chicken
• Princess Pad Thai
• Kunafa Middle Eastern Cheese Cake
• Cuban Sweet Corn Soufflé, and more!

Complete with stunning photography, outrageous tips, and a dash of chutzpah, The Modern Jewish Table introduces innovative dishes that will soon become Jewish traditions for the future.

As the title suggests, these are recipes, for everyday cooks, to update classic Jewish recipes, ingredients, and needs for today’s families. Included are not just the same classic Jewish recipes, but instead are new recipes from around the world that are adapted for the Jewish table. The photos are gorgeous and the binding is first class. The layout is striking and well designed. The recipes are sure a big hit around our house. Everyone loves the vegetarian Pho soup, the eggplant gyoza, the cashew chicken, and literally all of the fish dishes we’ve tried. The desserts are wonderful, too; my daughter and I are going to try the popcorn cake this weekend. Delicious, flavorful, and easy to make, this is a wonderful gift for any Jewish family.
