The Modern Jewish Baker
by Shannon Sarna
Published by Countryman Press

Shannon Sarna launched her career in the kitchen by necessity. She lost her mom at an early age (16) , and shared daily responsibilities for her younger siblings. Her baking career all started with her passion for making challah. Through multiple failures, like burnt challah and raw challah, she pursued her quest for the perfect challah…she tried and tried for years until she succeeded. (People even wanted to buy her loaves!). Over the years, she has expanded her challah baking to specialty baking including babka, bagels, rugelach, hamantashen, flatbreads & more—lots more. And, now she has taken the next step, and included her creations in a book!

The Modern Jewish Baker, her first cookbook, is the culmination of her baking journey. She presents a guidebook for successful baking, filled with personal anecdotes and easy to follow instructions. Her chapter on techniques, tools, toppings and fillings is a must read for any budding or experienced baker. We already made a batch of her “everything bagel topping” (sesame and poppy seeds, dried garlic and onion, salt and dried red pepper flakes), and we also made the babka crumb topping- it’s luscious.
Shannon’s creativity shines throughout the pages in the book- such as her birthday cake, tropical, s’mores and olive tapenade babka; pumpkin/chocolate rugelach and goat cheese rugelach. She shares basic, classic, traditional recipes and then adds a contemporary twist with trendy ingredients and surprising flavor combinations. The accompanying photos are beautiful.

We are sharing the recipe for Shannon’s rosemary garlic challah, from Modern Jewish Baker. To make this challah, we used fresh organic rosemary from our backyard garden. You will have fun as you bake through this book! Let your creative baking juices flow…

King Solomon’s Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World
by Joan Nathan, Alfred A. Knopf, Publisher

King Solomon’s Table is a culinary milestone. It is a book that that travels the world with its readers, and explores foods from ancient and biblical tables through stories, recipes, memories and historical facts. Joan Nathan has been gathering cultural and culinary gems for many decades. In our opinion this book is a culmination of her work.

A note from the publisher:
“King Solomon’s Table is a compendium of Jewish recipes from around the globe and across the ages. Driven by a passion for discovery, the biblical King Solomon is said to have sent emissaries on land and sea to all corners of the ancient world, initiating a mass cross-pollination of culinary cultures that continues to bear fruit today. With Solomon’s appetites and explorations in mind, Joan Nathan gathers together more than 170 recipes, from Israel to Italy to India and beyond.”

In her four-decade career, Joan has traveled the world searching for the roots of Jewish food, testing and tasting, uncovering ingredient origins and recipes. She has visited in the homes and kitchens of Jewish communities, seeking personal stories and memories about food, tradition and family. Her research has uncovered and clarified Jewish wanderings, and showcased the diversity and rich origins of Jewish cuisine.

As in all cookbooks, the recipes are at the forefront—and the ones in this book are enticing and happily, surprisingly easily do-able. The accompanying photographs are beautiful as well. Travel the world with Joan as she shares recipes to tempt an adventurous global palate. Dishes include such traditional treasures as Yemenite Chicken Soup, Greek Bourekas, Israeli Smoky Shakshuka, Baghdadi Chicken with Rice, Roman Ricotta Cheese Torte…She presents 170 recipes – biblical, historical and global. The foods are sourced from her worldwide food journeys from India to France, from Italy to Mexico, from El Salvador to Israel and, of course, all across North America,
In addition to recipes, this cookbook offers a breathtaking Jewish culinary history. It is reflective of the work of our friend, the late Gil Marks, a noted award-winning Jewish food scholar, who we are certain would have applauded King Solomon’s Table for its personal, approachable and informative culinary narrative and its expansive historical scope. Kudos to Joan Nathan! King Solomon’s Table is a KosherEye “gift yourself and gift others” selection –an important and significant addition to any culinary library.

Try these recipes for: Hummus with Preserved Lemon and Cumin and Keftes Garaz, Syrian Meatballs with Cherries and Tamarind
