Alana Newhouse at the Jewish Book Festival

November 10 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

$25

To para­phrase an old cliché, put any two Jews togeth­er and you’ll have three opin­ions about Jew­ish food. Ask them to name the most Jew­ish Food and the list turns high­ly debat­able — exact­ly the best way to describe The 100 Most Jew­ish Foods, edit­ed by Alana New­house of Tablet mag­a­zine, a dai­ly online mag­a­zine of Jew­ish news ideas and cul­ture which she found­ed in 2009. Infor­ma­tive, unex­pect­ed, pas­sion­ate, quirky, and rich with lay­ers of tra­di­tion and his­to­ry, like an edi­ble time­line trac­ing the dias­po­ra, it’s a book that cel­e­brates the one unwa­ver­ing con­stant of Jew­ish life: Food. Con­trib­u­tors include Ruth Reichl, Joan Nathan, Michael Solomonov, Dan Bar­ber, Gail Sim­mons, Yotam Ottolenghi, Maira Kalman, Action Bron­son, Daphne Merkin, Shalom Aus­lan­der, Dr. Ruth Wes­t­heimer, and Phil Rosen­thal among many others.
