Jewish baking has brought families together around the table for centuries. In Modern Jewish Baker, Shannon Sarna pays homage to traditions while reinvigorating them with modern flavours and new ideas. One kosher dough at a time, she offers the basics for challah, babka, bagels, hamantaschen, rugelach, pita and matzah.
