"You'll find recipes for refined, elegant dishes that reflect the classic culinary training of chef Todd Gray. . . . While all the recipes aren't necessarily "Jewish," per se, the ones that are have a chef's touch . . . The Grays' culinary journeys are interspersed throughout, and I believe it's one that many readers--Jewish or not--can probably relate to. And the fact that chef Gray isn't Jewish hasn't stopped him from embracing his wife's Jewish background. It really doesn't get more modern than that." --Esther Sung, Epicurious.com"The Grays remake the much-maligned gefilte fish into a desirable dish with lemon, herbs and three types of fresh fish." --Modern Luxury DC"Jewish table by 'blending' tastes and histories...this book has a very personal and inviting feel, asking the reader to focus on enjoying the food." --Publisher's Weekly"Fresh and appealing, this book reflects a unique blend of traditions. Great for families interested in contemporary Jewish cuisine. Highly recommended." --Library Journal"Filled with the lore of Ellen's family's passion for Jewish food and Todd's youthful explorations of Pennsylvania-Dutch cuisine and his chef's training, The New Jewish Table is a delightful blending of recipes, tips, and tales, with the culinary traditions that nurtured both, reinterpreted for everyone to cook in Todd's sure and professional hand." --Joan Nathan, author of Jewish Cooking in America and Joan Nathan's Jewish Holiday Cookbook"The New Jewish Table has found an open and eager spot in my kitchen! A refreshing take on Jewish food, that is wholesome at the same time as scrumptious. With an emphasis on a seasonal approach, it offers a load full of ideas for everyday meals as well as how to give a much needed lift to Holiday menus. As I was flipping the pages of the cookbook and jotting down which recipe I want to try first, I gave up: I want to try them all." --Pati Jinich, host of the PBS's series Pati's Mexican Table, cooking teacher, food writer and official Chef of the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, DC"Todd and Ellen Gray's Equinox Restaurant is a perfect balance between one of Washington's best chefs and one of its warmest hosts, and whether you're a Virginia homeboy like him or a city-bred Jewish girl like her, these elegant, seasonally-sensitive and clan-friendly recipes will make you feel you're mishpacha - or, as they say in the Old Dominion, "Fam'ly." Mazel tov! to them, and good eats for the rest of us." --Todd S. Purdum, national editor, Vanity Fair, and previously award-winning journalist The New York Times"With this book, Todd and Ellen show us how creative chefs are preserving food memories from their cultural background by incorporating them into modern American recipes." --Nora Pouillon, chef and owner of Restaurant Nora and author of Cooking with Nora
