Caught in a Nosh: 125 Vegan Kosher Recipes

noshcover3I am beyond stoked to announce the upcoming release of my second cookbook, Caught in a Nosh: 125 Kosher Recipes – featuring a foreword written by the one and only Colt Cabana! Since the release of my first book, Bake and Destroy: Good Food for Bad Vegans I have been potshki-ing around the kitchen developing vegan versions of everything from babka to vorschmack – that’s right, vegan vorschmack. They said it couldn’t be done, but I mother f’n did it. This book is packed with my signature shiksa spin on traditional Jewish recipes that so easy any schmuck could make them!

If you’ve made it this far – congrats – you read more than most people these days! I will reward you by admitting that this was, indeed, an April Fool’s joke and by giving you a chance to win a copy of my actual cookbook. Also, I am working on a second book that is not a hilarious joke and I’m psyched to tell you all the details as soon as I can!

Love fake books? Check out last year’s post when I announced another fake book release! PS I created this book cover using The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home.

Introducing my Second Cookbook

Pre-sales on my first book, Bake and Destroy: Good Food for Bad Vegans have been so overwhelming that I’m excited to announce I’ve already started work on my second book: Eat Shit and Die!

eat shit and die

Whereas Good Food for Bad Vegans featured 100% vegan party foods like Totchos, Banana Bread French Toast Cupcakes and BBQ Salad, my latest book will send your stomach straight to hell with gut-busting recipes for Extra Mayo Deviled Eggs, Ham-Stuffed French Toast and Gluten-Free Bacon Cupcakes. I created this collection of bland, greasy, depressing recipes for those of you who prefer to snack while crying in the bathtub.

Look for Eat Shit and Die, and for my first book Bake and Destroy: Good Food for Bad Vegans wherever books are sold! (April Fools!)
