The Secrets of Ashkenazi Comfort Food

In the depths of winter, even the most adventurous eaters sometimes long for the old-fashioned tastes of Eastern European comfort cooking. Can these old recipes be made modern and healthy? Beloved community chef Susan Barocas will lead us through the planning and cooking of such multi-generational standbys as borscht, eggplant caviar and even a cholent. She’ll feed us with recipes, stories and, of course, copious samples.

Susan Barocas is a writer, chef, teacher, filmmaker and organizer of special events.

Cost: $20
