Alana Newhouse - The 100 Most Jewish Foods: A Highly Debatable List — in conversation with Joan Nathan — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Sunday, April 14, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Downplaying popularity, taste, and history in favor of cultural significance, Newhouse, editor in chief of Tablet, has compiled a list of the most iconic Jewish foods—one that is sure to spark lively discussion. Among the worthy you’ll find the predictable matzo balls, pickles, cheesecake, blintzes, and chopped liver, favorites such as babka and shakshuka, important regional foods like Adafina, and the sweet malida porridge of India's Bene Israel Jews, but also dishes that appeal to a more rarefied palate, like jellied calves’ feet. Each dish is accompanied by an essay that delves into its role in Jewish culture, illustrated with stories, photos, and recipes. Contributors include Ruth Reichl, Éric Ripert, Michael Solomonov, Dan Barber, Gail Simmons, Yotam Ottolenghi, Tom Colicchio, Amanda Hesser, and many others. Newhouse will be in conversation with contributor Joan Nathan, author most recently of King Solomon’s Table.
