After her favorite knish shop went out of business in Brooklyn, Laura Silver embarked on a round-the-world quest for the origins and modern-day manifestations of the knish. In a series of funny, moving and touching episodes, Silver takes us on a knish-eye tour of worlds past and present, laying the foundation for a global knish renaissance.

Silver teaches in the Department of Food Studies at the New School. An award-winning journalist, her writings appear in journals and on NPR. She is the world's leading expert on the knish.
