I am a big fan of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel from Amazon Studios. At some point, you get the feeling that the show is not only about comedy but also about the Jewish food experience. So you say to yourself, what a great idea to put out a recipe book based on the show. One thing about that is that you cannot sell your book on Amazon. Imagine putting all that hard work into this book and finding out Amazon will not sell your book. Anthony LeDonne and his publisher found out the hard way. Due to legal stuff between his publisher and Amazon Studios, they can’t sell the book. What seems like a well-intended stunt that Susie Myerson would pull. A week before release, Amazon “pulped” a warehouse full of his books—and broke his heart. Let’s celebrate Anthony’s great work. Let’s hope he gets his book out one day. You can find his recipes online for free. Eat Like a Maisel will have to remain online for now.
What’s more marvelous than watching Miriam Maisel take the New York comedy scene by storm? Eating just like her while doing it!
In this fun, unofficial cookbook inspired by the eight-time Emmy Award-winning show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, fans of the hit show will love dropping into the Maisels’ and Weissmans’ kitchens and eating, drinking, and entertaining just like them. Anthony LeDonne explores the culinary world of Manhattan in the 1950s, honoring beloved classics while offering a fresh take with modern ingredients and techniques, which the ever-improving Midge would surely approve of.

You’ll find recipes such as:
