Jewish food maven to ‘mix it up’ for NCJW
CHEF-ENTREPRENEUR JEFFREY Yoskowitz, coauthor of “The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods,” will present “Ashkenazi Mixology: Jewish-Inspired Cocktails & Noshes,” a workshop/demonstration to benefit National Council of Jewish Women, West Morris Section, on Saturday, Jan. 5, at 7:30 p.m. at a private home in Morristown.
Cofounder of The Gefilteria, a Brooklyn-based culinary venture that reimagines Eastern European Jewish cuisine, Yoskowitz offers cooking programs and teaches about the history and culture of Jewish food. He writes for numerous publications, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Forward, and was named to both the “Forbes 30 under 30” in food & wine and the “Forward 50.”
“Jewish cuisine of Central and Eastern Europe may not be known for elaborate cocktails, but at the tradition’s heart is a robust culinary vernacular full of familiar flavors coming from unexpected places,” said Yoskowitz. In the program, participants will “delve into the Jewish relationship to drinking…, learn the essentials of basic mixology, and make their own drinks from ‘The Gefilte Manifesto’ cookbook.”
Copies of the cookbook, a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award, will be available for sale at the event.
The snow date is Saturday, Jan. 12, at another private home in Morristown.
The cost to attend is $90 ($75 until Dec. 20). A platinum sponsorship is $154, which includes an autographed copy of “The Gefilte Manifesto.” Make reservations by Dec. 28.
