Modern Jewish Baker: Challah, Babka, Bagels & More by Shannon Sarna

Modern Jewish Baker: Challah, Babka, Bagels & More by Shannon Sarna


Listen to our podcast with author Shannon Sarna here.

Step-by-step instructions for the seven core doughs of Jewish baking.

Jewish baked goods have brought families together around the table for centuries. In Modern Jewish Baker, Sarna pays homage to those traditions while reinvigorating them with modern flavors and new ideas. One kosher dough at a time, she offers the basics for challah, babka, bagels, hamantaschen, rugelach, pita, and matzah. Never one to shy away from innovation, Sarna sends her readers off on a bake-your-own adventure with twists on these classics. Recipes include:

  • Chocolate Chip Hamantaschen
  • Tomato-Basil Challah
  • Everything-Bagel Rugelach
  • S’mores Babka

Detailed instructions, as well as notes on make-ahead strategies, ideas for using leftovers, and other practical tips will have even novice bakers braiding beautiful shiny loaves that will make any bubbe proud.
