Beyond Bubbie - With Reboot & JIMENA
Wed. 3/21 @ 7pm
Come for the food, stay for the conversation. Guest chefs will prepare favorite dishes, while sharing their own stories behind the recipes. Opportunities for discussion and recipe exchanges abound! Nosh, drink, and share details from your Bubbie’s favorite meal!
This immersive experience will include an array of Sephardic cuisine from North Africa and the Middle East through two of the guest chefs, Gina Waldman and Joseph Shamash. They will each prepare and demonstrate a traditional Sephardic dish from their country of origins (Libya and Iraq, respectively) and share their family history that go along with them. To end on a sweet note, Amy Kritzer is making Baklava Spiced Rugelach, a twist on her Bubbe's classic cinnamon variety, with the addition of candied ginger, cardamom and other spices.
Amy Kritzer - Food Blogger, What Jew Wanna Eat
Joseph Shamash - Guest chef

About the Organizations
Beyond Bubbie is a project of Reboot. Part cultural anthology, part community cookbook, part culinary experiment, the Beyond Bubbie project is a portal for gathering essays, ephemera, and recipes. Share yours here. Reboot affirms the value of Jewish traditions and creates new ways for people to make them their own through creative projects inspired by Jewish ritual.
JIMENA (Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa) endeavors to address the existing gaps in the historical narrative of the Middle East and North Africa by sharing the Mizrahi and Sephardi story of oppression, plight and displacement.
Jewish Women’s Theatre
Jewish Women’s Theatre (JWT) is a non-profit arts group that reinvents Jewish theater by putting a contemporary spin on the centuries-old tradition of salons. JWT aims to leave no Jewish story untold, while celebrating the truths that connect us all. Encouraging and supporting both lay and professional writers and artists, JWT inspires and performs original works that empower and educate individuals, create community and build cultural legacy. JWT seeks, develops and adapts stories celebrating a diverse Jewish population that can share the stage, regardless of gender, generation, degree of Jewish observance, ethnicity, cultural background, or sexual orientation. And so we draw audiences of all ages, both women and men, mostly Jewish, but not all.
