New York City is renowned for its Jewish cuisine, from diner matzoh ball soup to the limitless options for bagels, babka, and borscht. Jewish food has recently been elevated by inspired chefs, and simultaneously there is a nostalgic return to homespun staples. Host Gabriella Gershenson (food writer and editor at Every Day with Rachael Ray) dives into the topic with a panel of special guests all working to preserve and advance the art of Jewish food.
