Truly Thankful

Ep. 339: Making challah with Molly Yeh, Michael Twitty on ‘Koshersoul’ cooking, and Shannon Sarna on ‘Modern Jewish Comfort Food’

November 24, 2022

This week on Unorthodox, the mystery boxes are revealed! Mark, Stephanie, and Liel reveal the contents of their fundraiser giveaways, as well as the lucky winners.

Culinary historian Michael Twitty returns to the show to talk about his new book, Koshersoul: The Faith and Food Journey of an African American Jew.

Then, producer Quinn Waller teams up with cookbook author and Food Network star Molly Yeh to make challah in the latest installment of Quinn’s Cook Like a Jew series.

Finally, we share an interview with food writer and self-professed “pizza bagel” Shannon Sarna, recorded live at our recent West Orange, New Jersey, live show. She tells us about her new book, Modern Jewish Comfort Food, and shares her tricks for the perfect challah.
