Join food writer and cookbook author Leah Koenig (Modern Jewish Cooking) in two cooking and eating sessions
Session 1: Eating in Rome’s Jewish Ghetto
The Jews of Rome (an ancient community that stretches back to the second century B.C.E) were forced to live in walled ghettos for more than three centuries. Within these cramped and poverty-stricken confines, a unique and delicious cuisine emerged – pieces of which are still cooked by Rome’s Jews today. Learn more about the history of Cucina Ebraica Romana (Roman Jewish cuisine) while learning to make concia (garlic marinated zucchini) and other traditional dishes.
