Where did the food you love come from?
How did it develop?
How were the Spanish able to snuff out conversos using food and the Jewish Holidays?
These are big questions. We’ve all been subjected to the accusations of cultural appropration. Just how Jewish is Sephardi food?
Hélène Jawhara Piñer, PHD and Chef, will be discussing all this and more when she comes to Pomeranz Bookseller on Tuesday, August 9th at 18:00, in what is sure to be a fascinating evening.
She’s written the Cookbook SEPHARDI: COOKING THE HISTORY, which is the only full-length cookbook created from a variety of historical sources. It presents the Sephardim of the world as the best representatives and witnesses of a cuisine that continues to live today.
We are excited to see all who are able to attend. We are happy to inform you that all who purchase a copy of Hélène’s book will recieve free entry into the program.
