Journey to the Center of the Knish
Brooklyn Borough Hall
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:

When New York City native Laura Silver found out she could trace her roots to  Knyszyn, Poland, she made it her business to go to the small town fifteen minutes northeast of Bialystok. In June 2013, thanks to an award from CEC Artslink, she travelled to Knyszyn to lead a knish-baking session and was named head judge in the town's third annual knish-off.

At Brooklyn Borough Hall, on the seventh night of Chanukah, will discuss her recent adventures in Knyszyn, the legend of the knish and the state of the pastry in modern-day Poland. It's just the tip of mustard bottle. Laura full-length memoir and food history, Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food, is due out from Brandeis University Press in May 2014.
