Fress. Verb. Yiddish for eating copiously and without restraint.
UK Master Chef finalist Emma Spitzer is bringing together a melting pot of Middle-Eastern and Easter European flavors in her debut cookbook Fress: Bold Flavors from a Jewish Kitchen. The inspiration for this book comes from recipes passed down from her mother and her travels through Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and North Africa. If you’re new to Jewish cooking, don’t worry! There’s a section dedicated to kitchen-cupboard necessities that help create her 100 plus recipes.
Start with the Pastrami and Sauerkraut Pierogi with Dill and Mustard Sauce before trying the Sea Bass over Spiced Chickpeas with Confit Cherry Tomatoes and Moroccan Pesto. Top your meal off with a creamy Tahini Banofee Sundae. Be sure to get Fress, available now at $35.
