Jeffrey Yoskowitz and Liz Alpern are two of the leaders of the movement to revolutionise Ashkenazi cuisine. Together, they co-founded The Gefilteria in 2012, a Brooklyn-grown business that sets out to reimagine Jewish classics while championing Old World slow food techniques. Here in their first ever cookbook including 100-plus recipes pulled deep from the culinary histories of Eastern Europe and the diaspora community of North America, they draw inspiration from the legacies of Jewish pickle shops, bakeries, appetizing shops, dairy restaurants, delicatessens, and holiday kitchens. Tapping into the zeitgeist of rediscovering Old World food traditions like pickling, fermenting, and baking, at the heart of which are the values of resourcefulness and seasonality, The Gefilte Manifesto encourages anyone and everyone to incorporate healthy and vital Ashkenazi recipes into their everyday repertoire.

"I can t say enough good things about this bright, compelling offering that beautifully manages to frame traditional Ashkenazi cuisine with perfect twists and newness. It s no small feat to retain the character of an old, emotionally-held culinary culture while imparting fresh life to the standards. Jeffrey and Liz have nailed it, not only with outstanding recipes, but also with history and stories and context, impeccably written. The passion of yet another generation carries it forward; we Jewish mothers can be collectively entranced, inspired, and proud." - Mollie Katzen"

"This may change your mind about gefilte fish or open new culinary doors for you." Dixie D. Vereen, The Washington Post

"Sometimes all it takes is one recipe to justify a new cookbook. The chicken soup in The Gefilte Manifesto uses chicken parts that you brown before making the soup, something I have never done. But it works, enhancing depth and color in the broth. The whole point of the book, by the founders of the Gefilteria, the inventive online Jewish food company and caterer, is reworking traditional kosher Ashkenazi cooking and preparing dishes from scratch, with recipes like an inspired kimchi-stuffed cabbage." Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

"A glossy new cookbook with fresh takes on traditional Jewish recipes." Kara Baskin, The Boston Globe

"Borscht and gefilte fish are back, reprised as haute fare in this era of DIY style and old-timey authenticity. In a new cookbook of Ashkenazi food, Jeffrey Yoskowitz and Liz Alpern recast these and other humble, much-maligned specimens of Old World cuisine as the unlikely stars of a culinary movement." Adam Chandler, The Atlantic

"A blend of enthusiasm and expertise, The Gefilte Manifesto, their fabulous debut cookbook, offers Alpern and Yoskowitz s take on time-honored comfort foods with their heady flavors and wonderful textures, like Rustic Matzoh Balls in Classic Chicken Soup (aka Jewish penicillin), Chopped Liver Pate, light Cauliflower and Mushroom Kugel and Wine-Braised Brisket with Butternut Squash. Grandma never made Cardamom Pickled Grapes, Challah with a Marble Rye Twist or Dark Chocolate and Roasted Beet Ice Cream, but she d approve of these delicious innovations and recognize their Ashkenazi souls. L chaim!" Sybil Pratt, BookPage

"A lively collection of Ashkenazi standards some with a twist and others left to wander back to the old country." Leanne Italie, Associated Press

"From the minute I opened up The Gefilte Manifesto, a Flatiron Books publication, I realized that Yoskowitz and Alpern had struck gold, taking on traditional favorites and blowing them out of the water in a hip and trendy culinary renaissance." Sandy Eller, The Jewish Press

"Each recipe is not just a recipe but a story, a nugget, a web that connects us to our past and hopes to send us into the future." Johanna Ginsberg, New Jersey Jewish News

"In the pages of this beautifully written, accessible cookbook, Alpern and Yoskowitz recover and reinvent Eastern European Jewish classics and add a bunch of recipes that likely would have baffled their great-grandparents. Thus there are instructions and gorgeous photographs for sour dills, bagels and home-cured pastrami, and yes, gefilte fish three ways. Right alongside these classics are recipes for making Ashkenazi kimchi, root vegetable latkes and dark chocolate and roasted beet ice cream." Bari Weiss, NY1

"Gefilte gets an A on holiday taste test." Alix Wall, The Forward
