      THIS WEEKEND! The Gefilte Manifesto: Reviving and Reimagining Jewish Foods

      Your Grandmother's Cooking Never Looked this Good! Do not miss this special Foodie event just in time for Passover! Bring your friends who like to cook, who like to eat, or who like to cook and eat. Ever wonder how bagels, lox, whitefish, babka, rugelach, gefilte fish and other foods we commonly eat came to be regarded as Jewish cuisine and essential parts of our weekend routines or holiday celebrations?   Come curious and hungry for answers to those questions and a celebration of the origins of Ashkenazi and other Jewish foods.   Jeffrey Yoskowitz and Liz Alpern from NYC, authors of The Gefilte Manifesto and authorities of Jewish cooking and culture, will join us for a presentation on traditional Jewish cuisine including how those foods came to be viewed as "Jewish foods" and renewing interest among culinary experts in reviving and reimagining Jewish foods.  The presentation will be accompanied by an expanded traditional Jewish breakfast with opportunities to sample their limited run artisanal gefilte fish - just in time for Passover. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session and a book signing by Jeffrey and Liz.  For more information on Jeffrey, Liz, their Gefilteria operation and publications, check out: https://gefilteria.com/. The cost for the breakfast program is $10 per person and $20 per family unit. We look forward to seeing you!
