Lecture and Cooking Demonstration
YIVO members & students: $15
Join us for an evening celebrating Ashkenazi culinary traditions. Best-selling author Michael Wex will discuss his book Rhapsody in Schmaltz and reflect on why the serious study of Jewish food has been a blind spot in the study of Eastern European Jewry. He will then be joined by Liz Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz of The Gefilteria, and co-authors of The Gefilte Manifesto cookbook, who will present a live cooking demonstration while discussing their work in contemporary Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine. A light reception featuring Jewish food favorites will follow the event.
