Meeting Room, Kitchen

Celebrate Jewish American Heritage Month with us an enjoy a culinary presentation with cookbook author, Emily Paster!

In this class, Emily will demonstrate making cheese blintzes, a traditional Shavuot food. Shavuot, the Festival of Weeks, is the second of the three major festivals with both historical and agricultural significance (the other two are Passover and Sukkot); it begins on June 11 this year.

Attendees will receive samples to enjoy.

An Ivy League-educated lawyer turned food writer, Emily Paster brings passion, a sharp intellect, and attention to detail to her cuisine. An expert on Jewish food, Emily respects the traditions of both Ashkenazi and Sephardic cooking. Still, she is willing to break the rules in search of the best flavor — for example, making Olive Oil Ice Cream instead of fried doughnuts for Hanukah or lightening up her grandmother’s kreplach recipe with chicken instead of brisket. Her time living in Paris inspired her lifelong exploration of Jewish foodways around the globe and today translates into modern scratch recipes that appeal to contemporary palates.

Emily is a cookbook author and food blogger. Find out more about Emily and her culinary adventures here: https://www.westoftheloop.com/
