"Newish Jewish" Cooking Class
Wednesday, January 25, 2006

To Benefit Hebrew Day School Cultural Arts Programs

11:00a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Donation $50.00 per guest

The dishes that we think of being Jewish usually are connected historically and geographically to the cultures in which Jews have lived and adapted themselves to local conditions and natural resources.

No raw materials start out as being Jewish. No potato, no apple, nor salmon is Jewish per se. Jewish cooking is meaningless unless it is tied to a time and a place. Simply because all fruits and vegetables are kosher, it does not make them Jewish. Kashruth, is a system of rules that define Kosher foodsó foods fit for Jews to eat.

In Jewish Cooking: Context is everything. Come learn and taste delicious, easy entertaining cooking from Chef Allen at his restaurant for a lunch and learn program

Lunch will be served.
