Joyce Goldstein's culinary resume is long and impressive: Cookbook author, owner and chef of Square One in San Francisco for 12 years, James Beard Award winner, founder and director of the California Street Cooking School, and food writer, to name just a few.
Goldstein's most recent book, The New Mediterranean Jewish Table (University of California Press) is an authoritative guide to Jewish home cooking from the Middle East, North Africa, Greece, Italy, Spain and Turkey. One of our Food & Wine Test Kitchen favorites from the book is Goldstein's Passover Cheese Pie from Chania.

This simple, cheese-stuffed pie recipe adapted from Joyce Goldstein's The New Mediterranean Jewish Table is perfect for Passover. Goldstein's recipe calls for olive oil for brushing the layers, but we loved it with melted butter too.
