THE KNISH: So Much More Than a Hunk of Dough

When Laura Silver’s favorite knish shop went out of business, the native New Yorker sank into mourning, but then she sprang into action.  She embarked on a round-the-world quest for the origins and modern-day manifestations of the knish.  The iconic potato pie led Silver from Mrs. Stahl’s bakery in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, to an Italian pasta maker in New Jersey – and on to a hunt across three continents for the pastry that shaped her identity.  The result? KNISH: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food, a highly acclaimed, deliciously delectable cultural history that combines biography, memoir, humor, nostalgic memories, recipes, and an essential guide to where to buy a great knish!

Laura Silver is an award-winning journalist whose writing on food and culture has appeared in The New York Times, The Jewish Daily Forward, the Jerusalem Report and on NPR.
