The New Mediterranean Jewish Table

Hosted by

When we reached Joyce Goldstein to talk about her latest book The New Mediterranean Jewish Table: Old World Recipes for the Modern Home, she called herself a detective. "I like to know where food comes from, following the trail of a recipe from one country to the other," Goldstein told Evan. For the book, she focused her sleuthing skills on dishes that are part of Sephardic, Maghrebi and Mizrahi culinary traditions. She shares a recipe for a dish popular for Passover in the Mediterranean: carciofata di Trieste.
