The Five Texts of Jewish Food

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join culinary historian and Jewish educator Michael W. Twitty for an interactive and engaging discussion on Jewish food with a snack at the end!  What are the five texts of Jewish food and what does their interplay have to teach us about the definition of "Jewish food"?  We will prepare Tea Cake Hamantaschen with Southern-style fillings to bring the discussion to life.
