Featured Recipe from The Mile End Cookbook: Quick Cucumber Pickles

- 1 cup Diamond Crystal kosher salt cup sugar

- 4 teaspoons ground coriander
- 1 garlic clove, grated
- ½ English cucumber (about 8 ounces), skin on, sliced very thin, ideally on a mandoline

“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)

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.
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.
