Have a sweet new year with Michael Rakowitz's 'A House with a Date Palm Will Never Starve'

If you're looking for a different way to cook—not to mention, a different way to think—for the Jewish holidays and beyond this year, check out recent Nasher-prize-winning Jewish-Iraqi artist Michael Rakowitz's A House with a Date Palm Will Never Starve, a legit cookbook and a philosophical challenge collecting recipes by 41 international chefs, restauranteurs and food writers centered around one often-overlooked but politically pivotal ingredient: the humble date. A staple in Iraq, where Rakowitz's family emigrated from, as well as a focal point in Rakowitz's critically-acclaimed artwork, date syrup also happens to be a favorite ingredient of chefs like Yotam Ottolenghi, Marcus Samuelsson, Alice Waters and Claudia Roden, who all contribute killer recipes. As Rosh Hashonah is the holiday where Jews traditionally celebrate their hopes for a sweet new year, we're featuring Philip Juma's Kleicha, or date and cardamom cookies.
