Janna Gur, author of the acclaimed The Book of New Israeli Food, returns with this cookbook devoted to the culinary masterpieces of Jewish grandmothers from Minsk to Marrakesh: recipes that have traveled across continents and cultural borders and are now brought to life for a new generation.

The more than 100 original, wide-ranging recipes in Jewish Soul Food—from Kubaneh, a surprising Yemenite version of a brioche, to Ushpa-lau, a hearty Bukharan pilaf—were chosen by what Janna Gur calls “natural selection.”

These are the dishes that have been embraced by Israelis and have become part of the country’s culinary landscape.  The premise of Jewish Soul Food is that the only way to preserve traditional cuisine for future generations is to cook it, and Janna gives us recipes that continue to charm with their practicality, relevance, and deliciousness.
