KEYNOTE CONVERSATION

What Makes Food Jewish Anyway?

A Discussion on Diaspora, Recipe Evolution, and Delicious Food

 

​Borrowing is at the heart of Jewish cuisine. Throughout history and across the globe, Jewish communities have eaten the foods of their neighbors, adapting these dishes to accommodate the kosher rules and holiday rituals.

 

So how, then, does one define what makes a particular dish “Jewish?” In this lively discussion, cookbook author Leah Koenig and food writer Liz Rueven of Kosher Like Me will debate, and gently push, the boundaries of Jewish cuisine.
