Nothing says you love someone quite like a homecooked meal! Grab your partner and join HMI and food star Jake Cohen as we heat up the kitchen in celebration of the Jewish holiday of love: Tu B’av! Jake will be walking us through a few recipes from his cookbook “Jew-ish: A Cookbook: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch” and sharing how his recipes were inspired by his own family history, as well as his Persian-Iraqi husband’s culinary traditions and stories. No cooking experience necessary — just come curious, come hungry, and come reading to feel the LOVE.
Jake Cohen studied at the Culinary Institute of America, during and after which he spent time working the line at NYC institutions, DANIEL and ABC Kitchen. Eventually, Jake transitioned out of restaurants and into food media, first at SAVEUR magazine, where Jake led up recipe testing in the publication’s test kitchen. After SAVEUR, his career led him to writing and contributing to dozens of food publications, as well as serving as the Food Editor of TastingTable.com and the food critic for Time Out New York.
