Koshersoul: The Faith and Food Journey of an African American Jew By Michael W. Twitty Cover Image
$28.99
ISBN: 9780062891754
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Amistad - August 9th, 2022

As the title hints, Koshersoul is the marriage of two distinct yet intertwined food culture--Black and Jewish, a conversation about the recipes of the African Atlantic and the global Jewish Diaspora. It is memoir and recipes, food history and cultural analysis. A discussion of Jews of Color, of holidays, of all the different strands and faces of Jewishness and, as the subtitle directly states, the faith and food journey of an African American Jew. Highly readable, delicious, and thought-provoking.

This is Kitchen Confidential for the front-of-house staff!

The pandemic made Ina Garten rethink nightly meals--to find ways to simplify delicious dishes as she found herself cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner while quarantined. The result is one of the most accessible cookbooks yet, which is saying a lot for someone whose recipes are generally uncomplicated yet sophisticated and always delicious. There’s a one-pot oven risotto with asparagus that looks sublime and easy yet yummy avocado and bacon tartines, far superior to an ordinary Benedict. A cookbook for everyone from beginners to seasoned chefs.
