The Edible History of an Immigrant Ghetto / Culinary Historians of NY
The Edible History of an Immigrant Ghetto with Jane Ziegelman

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Pushcart pickles and Jewish knishes, Italian peddler pizzarelli, Russian tea parlors with blintzes and strudel next door to German beer gardens and Romanian nightclubs serving goose pastrami -- these are some of the many "comestible enticements" Americans discovered as they explored the rich culinary life of the immigrant ghetto of the Lower East Side a century ago.

Jane Ziegelman will present stories and lives of five immigrant families through the food they prepared. The families were all residents of 97 Orchard Street, the site of today's New York Tenement Museum. In her book of the same name, 97 Orchard, Ziegelman charts this exciting process of discovery as it lays bare the roots of our collective culinary heritage.

Jane Ziegelman is a food writer, cooking teacher, and director of the forthcoming culinary program at New York City's Tenement Museum.
