Hide & Seek: A Purim Kreplach Story with The Gefilteria

Tue February 23 @ 19:45 - 20:45

Hide and Seek: A Purim Kreplach Story with The Gefilteria
Join chefs and cultural activists Liz and Jeffrey from The Gefilteria in Brooklyn, NY for an interactive cooking experience. We’ll explore the oft-overlooked tradition of eating hidden foods on Purim and learn how to make an unexpected Purim delicacy from eastern Europe: kreplach (aka Jewish wontons). We’ll prepare vegetarian versions of kreplach and enjoy it with a rich broth. Be prepared to cook along and be empowered to add your own flair.

Liz Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz are co-founders of The Gefilteria, a new kind of food venture launched in 2012 with a manifesto and a mission to reimagine eastern European Jewish cuisine. Together, they authored a narrative cookbook, The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods (Flatiron Books, 2016). In addition to producing a celebrated artisanal gefilte fish during major Jewish holidays, Alpern and Yoskowitz travel the world (and the virtual world) empowering communities through food.
