Publisher Description

Noah and Rae Bernamoff, owners of the New York City restaurant Mile End, celebrate the craft of new Jewish cooking with more than 100 soul-satisfying recipes and gorgeous photographs.

When Noah and Rae opened Mile End, their tiny Brooklyn restaurant, they had a mission: to share the classic Jewish comfort food of their childhood. Using their grandmothers’ recipes as a starting point, they updated traditional dishes and elevated them with fresh ingredients and from-scratch cooking techniques.

In The Mile End Cookbook, the Bernamoffs share warm memories of cooking with their families and the traditions and holidays that inspire recipes like blintzes with seasonal fruit compote; chicken salad whose secret ingredient is fresh gribenes; veal schnitzel kicked up with pickled green tomatoes and preserved lemons; tsimis that’s never mushy; and cinnamon buns made with challah dough. Noah and Rae also celebrate homemade delicatessen staples and share their recipes and methods for pickling, preserving, and smoking just about anything.

For every occasion, mood, and meal, these are recipes that any home cook can make, including:

SMOKED AND CURED MEAT AND FISH: brisket, salami, turkey, lamb bacon, lox, mackerel

PICKLES, GARNISHES, FILLINGS, AND CONDIMENTS: sour pickles, pickled fennel, horseradish cream, chicken confit, sauerkraut, and soup mandel

SUMPTUOUS SWEETS AND BREADS: rugelach, jelly-filled doughnuts, flourless chocolate cake, honey cake, cheesecake, challah, rye

ALL THE CLASSICS: the ultimate chicken soup, gefilte fish, corned beef sandwich, latkes, knishes

With tips and lore from Jewish and culinary mavens, such as Joan Nathan and Niki Russ Federman of Russ & Daughters, plus holiday menus, Jewish cooking has never been so inspiring.

TechSuperhero ,

Great Book, but steer clear of the iBooks version!

I grew up in Montreal and live in upstate NY. I crave my Montreal favorites such as Montreal Bagels and Smoked Meat sandwiches. After reading about the Mile End Deli, I was excited to check our their cookbook. I LOVE the book itself, but the iBooks format is awful! There is no option to switch to single page (full screen) mode, you can’t print pages from the cookbook, and you can’t even swipe between pages properly. There is no option to adjust font sizes, switch from white to sepia mode, or any of the other usual ePub features! Since you’re stuck in two-page letterbox mode, the font is tiny. I can’t adjust the font sizes, so it’s basically unreasdable except for on my Mac with 30” display. When I try to swipe pages, iBooks scrolls from the left page to the right one, then I have to swipe again to switch pages. It’s as if someone scanned each page to a JPG image and switched the pictures together to form a book that had linking enabled from the table of contents. Buy the real deal or PDF, not this version.
