Chef Leah Cohen’s Bowery Recipes

Check out our favorite recipes from Chef Leah Cohen, chef/owner of Piggyback and Pig and Khao.

When we want bright, punchy flavors, we turn to our friend, Chef Leah Cohen – so it should come as no surprise that our two new favorite recipes are ones of hers featuring Bowery produce.

Chef Leah might be best know for the Southeast Asian flavors she slings day to day at her NYC institutions Pig and Khao and Piggyback – dive into her cookbook, Lemongrass & Lime, to find the best ways to recreate them at home! – but when she’s home with the fam, baking is a group favorite. Try out Chef Leah’s Savory Bowery Spinach Feta Babka recipe for your own family, and check out the video below to watch the master twist hers up!


To stay refreshed and transport yourself to a warmer destination when you close your eyes and sip – try out this Bowery-ified take on one of Chef Leah’s Pig and Khao classics, Cilantro Basil Soda. Spiked or not, this is on our repeat list. Watch Leah expertly craft a glass below, then try it for yourself at home!
