Emily Paster – The Joys of Jewish Preserving: Modern Recipes with Traditional Roots, for Jams, Pickles, Fruit Butters, and More

Politics and Prose
Monday, August 28, 2017
7:00 PM — 9:00 PM
5015 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20008 United States

Free Event Metro-accessible

Throughout Jewish history, preserved foods have served both practical and spiritual needs, keeping alive a people and their faith through sojourns in deserts and isolation in ghettoes. In her second book, Paster, a D.C. native now based in Chicago where she writes the West of the Loop blog, presents seventy-five recipes. Both traditional and brand new, these cover jams and fruit preserves, pickles, and holiday dishes. Each is illustrated with beautiful color photographs and accompanied by stories contextualizing it within Jewish tradition.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

All our in-store events are free and open to the public.

If you can’t come to an event and still want an autographed copy of the book, you may purchase titles in advance either in the store, over the phone or through our website.

If you purchase a book and ticket package for one of our co-sponsored events held outside of the store but are unable to attend, we will hold the book at our store for up to six months. If you are unable to pick up the book, please call us to arrange shipping. Although we will make every effort, we cannot guarantee the book will be signed by the author for those customers unable to attend the event.

P&P will try to provide a sign language interpreter for an event, but the request must be made no later than ten days before the event. If we’re unable to secure an interpreter, we will attempt to record the event and prepare a written transcript of it upon request. Please send inquiries to [email protected].

All event-related inquiries can be sent to our Director of Events, Liz Hottel, at [email protected]. For Children &Teens Events, contact Margaret Orto at [email protected].
