What Makes Food Jewish Anyway?
A Discussion on Diaspora, Recipe Evolution, and Delicious Food
Borrowing is at the heart of Jewish cuisine. Throughout history and across the globe, Jewish communities have eaten the foods of their neighbors, adapting these dishes to accommodate the kosher rules and holiday rituals.
