The Art of Jewish Food event, in partnership with the J's Special Needs Department and Northern Virginia j.talks|
Jessica Fechtor, author of Stir: My Broken Brain and the Meals That Brought Me Home. At 28, Jessica Fechtor was happily immersed in graduate school and her young marriage, and thinking about starting a family. Then one day she went for a run and an aneurysm burst in her brain. Jessica's journey to recovery began in the kitchen as soon as she was able to stand at the stovetop and stir. There, she drew strength from the restorative power of cooking and baking. Jessica writes the popular food blog, Sweet Amandine.

The Art of Jewish Food is funded in part by The Jewish Food Experience (JFE), a program of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington (http://jewishfoodexperience.com).
The Art of Jewish Food, powered by the J, celebrates Jewish food and culture through food, film and author events. More than just sustenance, food is a reflection of a community's history, culture and values. Jewish food is a diverse cuisine that has evolved over many centuries, shaped by Jewish dietary laws (kashrut) and the economics, agriculture, and culinary traditions of the many countries where Jewish communities have existed.
