About the Program

Described as the “creative, youthful future of Jewish food,” Jake Cohen introduces us to his hot new cookbook, Jew-ish, reinventing the food of his Ashkenazi heritage and drawing inspiration from his husband’s Persian-Iraqi traditions. In conversation with food writer and historian Michael Twitty (The Cooking Gene), Cohen reveals the stories behind his mouthwatering original recipes.

Books available for purchase from Book Soup.
