Product Description


“With The Mile End Cookbook, Noah and Rae seamlessly reinvent the recipes of our ancestors in a style that’s at once thoroughly modern and truly authentic. These are the cravings of our people —past, present, and, thanks to Mile End, of future generations, too. Delicious, thoughtful, and utterly satisfying. L’Chaim!” –GAIL SIMMONS, AUTHOR OF TALKING WITH MY MOUTH FULL: MY LIFE AS A PROFESSIONAL EATER

“At long last my grandma’s Eastern European food gets the great chef treatment at Mile End. It’s the real deal, only—Grandma and Ma please forgive me—maybe better. Happily and deliciously hamische. No more calls home with desperate pleas for that seder-saving brisket secret (burn the onions!).”–PETER KAMINSKY, AUTHOR OF CULINARY INTELLIGENCE: THE ART OF EATING HEALTHY (AND REALLY WELL)

About the Author

NOAH AND RAE BERNAMOFF opened Brooklyn’s Mile End Delicatessen in 2010. The New York Times dubbed it “a loving tribute to the deli tradition,” and Zagat and New York magazine voted it New York’s best deli. Originally from Montreal and New York, respectively, Noah and Rae now live in Park Slope.

HASH(0xa03f82a0) out of 5 stars The Deli Oct. 23 2012
By wogan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Mile End Deli is an interesting place. This cookbook tells how it came about and pictures of the family. There are articles such as; how to love your knife so it will love you back, equipment needed, ingredients and how to slice smoked meat.

Much of the information in here is how to accomplish do it yourself deli - making your own beef salami, roast beef and chopped liver. The directions are very good and make these deli standards as easy as possible. Some of the ingredients are harder to find like; gribenes, and schmaltz. Pictures are included of some of the dishes. Pickled eggs, mushrooms and sour pickles are easy and turn out very nicely.

More experienced cooks would be the ones able to accomplish the dishes in this book, but this is a good way to learn about authentic Jewish deli cuisine. There are holiday entertaining menus, a list of resources and an index.

HASH(0xa03f82f4) out of 5 stars Get it now! Nov. 2 2012

Pickled Onions? Pickled Eggs? You don't need to go to their restaurant, you can do it yourself. Not Jewish? No worries, I'm a Russian/Italian Catholic and I love this book.

HASH(0xa03f85d0) out of 5 stars Great pastrami! Dec 20 2014
By Conure fan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I only made one recipe from this - the pastrami. I didn't have enough time to fully cure it, but it was a huge success. The steaming trick is priceless. That recipe alone is worth the cost of the book.

HASH(0xa03f84c8) out of 5 stars Jewish cookbook March 29 2013
By Chris - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great stories, great recipes. Most recipes call for large amounts, might be difficult to scale recipes down for 2 people. Being from Brooklyn and living in Colorado, where there are no decent Jewish delis, this is just what I needed. You may not be able to get all the ingredients where you live, may have to order some stuff on line. I just wish they had a recipe for bagels and bialys!
