Event Banner-Jake Cohen

Are you looking for something new to serve at this year’s Seder? Jake Cohen has got you covered with ‘tiramatzu’ from his recently published debut cookbook, JEW-ISH: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch! This decadent combination of the classic Italian dessert tiramisu, made with Passover-friendly matzo, is sure to be a hit at this year’s table, no matter the size.

Join the Museum of Jewish Montreal with acclaimed chef and recipe developer Jake Cohen as we put a new spin on Passover desserts, and reconsider the possibilities of the holiday’s treats. In this live cooking demo, Jake will demonstrate the recipe step-by-step so you’ll be extra prepared to make Tiramatzu on your own or with your loved ones! Prior to the event, all attendees will receive a copy of the recipe, so you can follow along with Jake and save it for whenever you’re ready to make your own.

About JEW-ISH:
When you think of Jewish food, a few classics come to mind: chicken soup with matzo balls, challah, maybe a babka if you’re feeling adventurous. But as food writer and nice Jewish boy Jake Cohen demonstrates in this stunning debut cookbook, Jewish food can be so much more. In Jew-ish, he reinvents the food of his Ashkenazi heritage and draws inspiration from his husband’s Persian-Iraqi traditions to offer recipes that are modern, fresh, and enticing for a whole new generation of readers. Imagine the components of an everything bagel wrapped into a flaky galette and latkes dyed vibrant yellow with saffron for a Persian spin on the potato pancake, plus best-ever hybrid desserts like Macaroon Brownies and Pumpkin Spice Babka! From elevated, yet approachable classics like Jake’s Perfect Challah, Roasted Tomato Brisket, Short Rib Cholent, and Iraqi Beet Kubbeh Soup to innovative creations like Cacio e Pepe Rugelach, Sabich Bagel Sandwiches, and Matzo Tiramisu, Jew-ish is a brilliant collection of delicious recipes, but it’s also much more than that. As Jake reconciles ancient traditions with our modern times, his recipes become a celebration of a rich and vibrant history, a love story of blending cultures, and an invitation to gather around the table and create new memories with family, friends, and loved ones.

This event is made possible thanks to the support of the Nussia and Andre Aisenstadt Foundation, the Jewish Community Foundation, and Federation CJA.
