Jake Cohen in Conversation with Isaac Mizrahi

REGISTER

It’s hardly a secret that Jews have a penchant for food. We discuss it, argue about it and fold it into our memories. We snack on pickles and olives, dried apricots, halva, pretzels, rugelach, babka and bagels . . . then go on to eat full-course meals. We store chicken soup in our freezers in case anyone sneezes and keep an extra coffee cake on hand lest a friend stops by, regardless if they’re hungry.

Noshing is our national pastime — and for New York Times bestselling author Jake Cohen it’s a lifestyle.

Following up on Jew-ish, in his new book, I Could Nosh: Classic Jew-ish Recipes Revamped for Every Day, Jake marshals his trademark chutzpah to help readers, Jewish or not, keep eating, morning, noon and night. He paves the way to a medley of delights, from schmears, both sweet and savory, to chicken soup sans soup, challah of exotic variations, kugel fries, Persian rice treats and a tzimmes cake.

Jake returns to The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Cultural Center to discuss his unorthodox approach to the staples he grew up with and how food has deepened his Jewish identity.

A social media star with a million Instagram followers glued to his challah braiding and garlic matzo antics, Jake Cohen has worked as a food writer and in some of New York’s finest restaurants and in test kitchens.

Jake will be in conversation with Isaac Mizrahi, performer, host, writer, designer and producer for over 30 years. He was most recently seen as Amos Hart in the Broadway production of CHICAGO and has an annual residency at Café Carlyle in New York City. Isaac has also performed at various venues across the country such as Joe’s Pub, The Regency Ballroom and several City Winery locations nationwide. His New York Times Bestselling memoir, I.M., was published in February 2019. Read his full bio here and for more information, visit HelloIsaac.com.
