Knishery Owner Keeps the Faith

Yonah Schimmel, who? After losing his shot at "knishering" for the first time this past weekend at the Hester Street Fair (which was canceled owing to inclement weather), Knishery NYC proprietor Noah Wildman tells the Jew & Carrot that nothing can hold him back now. Instead of the fair, Wildman pumped out 500 knishes — in flavors ranging from the classic potato to mushroom quinoa from a local park on the LES. That worked out pretty well, but what’s next? Flea market food domination, obviously. Inspired by cruising around the Brooklyn Flea this summer, Wildman “saw a bunch of new upstarts doing fun things with ethnic comfort foods, like kimchi,” he says. “It made me feel briefly bad for myself, like ugg, I’m just a boring middle class white guy with nothing fun to contribute.” And also, naturally, a "Knish Klub." Sounds pretty exclusive. [Jew & Carrot/Forward]
