When blogger and cookbook author Molly Yeh starts cooking something up in her kitchen, it’s usually cause for celebration. Her food is as colorful as it is flavorful, almost always imbued imbued with a spirit of fun.
For the past five years running, the Forward’s annual list of best Jewish cookbooks has included something by Yotam Ottolenghi — from the U.S. release of “Plenty” in 2011 to last year’s “NOPI,” with “Jerusalem: A Cookbook” and others in between.
For two years now I’ve been chatting on the phone and conversing via email with our extraordinarily talented contributor, the uber-blogger and cookbook author Molly Yeh. We’ve discussed story ideas and deadlines, talked about her new book, “Molly on the Range,” and bonded over both having dads who cooked Chinese food. (Molly’s father is Chinese; my dad took lessons throughout my teens.) But since Molly resides on a farm in North Dakota and I work at a desk near the South Street Seaport in Manhattan, Molly and I had never actually met in person.
The ebullient, multitalented food blogger/photographer (and Juilliard-trained percussionist) Molly Yeh has been a contributor to the Forward’s food section for years. Her first cookbook, “Molly on the Range,” comes out October 4. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Molly about the book, what she recommends we make from it for the High Holidays and how she expresses her identity — and reaches across cultural boundaries — through food.
