What is this?

The Jewish Table is a clearing house for all things related to Jewish food. Each week, I share a recipe, story, or historical or cultural tidbit to pique subscribers’ curiosity and get them cooking.

If you feel inspired to subscribe (or invite friends to join you), you can do that here. And most importantly, I want to hear from you! If you have a Jewish family food story to share, a dish you want to track down, or a question about anything Jewish food related, feel free to be in touch. You can find me on Instagram here.

Who are you?

Oh hey! I’m Leah Koenig, and have been writing about Jewish food for over a decade, primarily for publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, Food & Wine, Tablet, Food52, and Epicurious. I am the author of six cookbooks including The Jewish Cookbook (Phaidon, 2019) and Modern Jewish Cooking. (Chronicle Books). I live and breathe (and naturally eat) Jewish food, and have found there is always something more to learn and uncover. I am excited to share those discoveries directly with you.

I am also a longtime Brooklyn resident, wife of musician Yoshie Fruchter, and mom to two great kiddos, Max and Bea, who will occasionally make their way into the newsletter too!
