Join JFN and the Paul E. Singer Foundation for a special viewing of the Jewish Food Society’s new spoken word event — Schmaltzy. The evening will begin with a program of short stories told by four performers: a celebrity chef, a CEO, a grandma who’s also a caterer, and a young Jewish-food entrepreneur. Following the performance, enjoy a taste of the dishes that inspired the stories prepared by the storytellers themselves. Emceed by Leah Koenig, Brooklyn-based food writer and cookbook author.

What’s on the menu:

  • Kubaneh (Yemenite overnight bread) by Chef Einat Admony of Taim and Balaboosta
  • Kreplach Soup by Anna Gershenson, a caterer & grandma
  • Roasted Garlic Potato Knish’s by Liz Alpern of The Gefilteria
  • Schichttorte (German Layer Cake with Marzipan, Coffee Meringue, and Jam) by Idan Cohen, CEO of Grow
