The Gefilte Manifesto is more than a cookbook. It’s a call to action, a reclamation of time-honored techniques and ingredients, from the mind-blowingly easy Classic Sour Dill Pickles to the Crispy Honey-Glazed Chicken with Tsimmes.
“The Gefilte Manifesto is a comprehensive guide to contemporary Jewish cooking complete with sharp writing, beautiful photography, and robust flavor. Jeffrey and Liz have figured out how to take Bubbe’s cooking and pass the baton to the modern-day cook.” – Michael Solomonov, chef of Zahav and author of Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking
