OPENING NIGHT | SCHMALTZ IT UP! YIDDISH FOOD THEN AND NOW
8:00 PM | Michael Wex with Liz Alpern & Jeffrey Yoskowitz moderated by Ziggy Gruber

Rhapsody in Schmaltz: Yiddish Food and Why We Cant Stop Eating It

The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods

Bagels, kugel, cholent, and kosher dills are a few Jewish foods to have crossed into American culture. In Rhapsody in Schmaltz, Michael Wex traces the history and impact of the cuisine that Yiddish-speaking Jews from Central and Eastern Europe brought to North America. Writing in the Forward, Deena Yellin describes Wex as a writer who brings the perspective of a Talmudist, linguist, philosopher and stand-up comic to his subject.

Liz Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz are on a mission to revitalize Ashkenazi cuisine with recipes that draw inspiration from Jewish bakeries, neighborhood delis, old-fashioned pickle shops, and their own childhood kitchens. In The Gefilte Manifesto, they reclaim time-honored techniques and ingredients to produce radically delicious recipes that will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about Jewish food. Their manifesto: We will take food traditions seriously and reclaim the glory of Ashkenazi foodwhat it has been and what it can be....

This lively evening of conversation will be moderated by Houstons own Ziggy Gruber.

Doors open at 7:30 PM with pre-show music provided by Houston Symphonys Alexander Sasha Potiomkin (Clarinet) and Yadim Angerov (Accordian). Noshes for everyone!

IN HONOR OF MARILYN HASSID
