Review

“With The Mile End Cookbook, Noah and Rae seamlessly reinvent the recipes of our ancestors in a style that’s at once thoroughly modern and truly authentic. These are the cravings of our people —past, present, and, thanks to Mile End, of future generations, too. Delicious, thoughtful, and utterly satisfying. L’Chaim!” –GAIL SIMMONS, AUTHOR OF TALKING WITH MY MOUTH FULL: MY LIFE AS A PROFESSIONAL EATER

“At long last my grandma’s Eastern European food gets the great chef treatment at Mile End. It’s the real deal, only—Grandma and Ma please forgive me—maybe better. Happily and deliciously hamische. No more calls home with desperate pleas for that seder-saving brisket secret (burn the onions!).”–PETER KAMINSKY, AUTHOR OF CULINARY INTELLIGENCE: THE ART OF EATING HEALTHY (AND REALLY WELL)

The Mile End Deli is an interesting place. This cookbook tells how it came about and pictures of the family. There are articles such as; how to love your knife so it will love you back, equipment needed, ingredients and how to slice smoked meat.

Much of the information in here is how to accomplish do it yourself deli - making your own beef salami, roast beef and chopped liver. The directions are very good and make these deli standards as easy as possible. Some of the ingredients are harder to find like; gribenes, and schmaltz. Pictures are included of some of the dishes. Pickled eggs, mushrooms and sour pickles are easy and turn out very nicely.

More experienced cooks would be the ones able to accomplish the dishes in this book, but this is a good way to learn about authentic Jewish deli cuisine. There are holiday entertaining menus, a list of resources and an index.

Pickled Onions? Pickled Eggs? You don't need to go to their restaurant, you can do it yourself. Not Jewish? No worries, I'm a Russian/Italian Catholic and I love this book.

I only made one recipe from this - the pastrami. I didn't have enough time to fully cure it, but it was a huge success. The steaming trick is priceless. That recipe alone is worth the cost of the book.

Great stories, great recipes. Most recipes call for large amounts, might be difficult to scale recipes down for 2 people. Being from Brooklyn and living in Colorado, where there are no decent Jewish delis, this is just what I needed. You may not be able to get all the ingredients where you live, may have to order some stuff on line. I just wish they had a recipe for bagels and bialys!

This is a wonderful Jewish cookbook, almost as good as Grossinger's which is out of print. It is traditional but updated.

Cute, darling, lovely...you'll fall in love with the owners of Mile End as much as their mouth watering recipes. Nothing is overly technical, but everything looks delicious. I'm building a backyard smoker because of this book. I will master the Montreal smoked meat (and enjoy the challenge too!). A must buy. Everyone I've shared this book with has ran out and bought a copy immediately.

After a meal at Mile End, found by accident, and feeling totally perplexed as to how this could have been called a deli in the article we read before going, I finally understand what it's all about. That's good, because now we are likely to return. When we have a lot more money, that is. Expensive, but at least I know why now.

That said, the explanations are crucial to understanding the food, at least for New Yorkers . And get there early, they were out of most everything the evening we went.
