Eat Some­thing is part com­e­dy, part nos­tal­gic jour­ney part cook­book — the zany Jew­ish book we haven’t seen before. Tak­ing a scrap­book approach this book lay­ers food pho­tog­ra­phy illus­tra­tion by artist George McCal­man and Jew­ish cul­tur­al mem­o­ra­bil­ia sourced from Wise Sons cus­tomers and the Con­tem­po­rary Jew­ish Muse­um. It includes 19 smart and fun­ny short essays, 8 – 10 side­bars, and 50 recipes of favorite sal­ads, soups, baked goods, and more from their beloved restau­rants. Stem­ming from the the­sis that Jews eat by occa­sion the book is orga­nized into 19 dif­fer­ent events and cel­e­bra­tions chron­i­cling a Jew­ish life in food includ­ing bris, Shab­bat, Passover, and oth­er High Hol­i­days, first meal home from col­lege, J‑Dating, wed­ding, and more — an orga­ni­za­tion that makes this a light­heart­ed read and fun gift as well as a work­ing cookbook.
