ANNOUNCEMENT–the winner of the free ticket to Beyond Bubbie’s Kitchen is…a little Klezmer music please…Renee of http://www.eatliveblog.com. After bemoaning the lack of really good deli in Boston (I am with you on that sister), I hope you get your Jewish food joy on Jan 30. Thanks to everyone who participated and there are still some tickets available for purchase Ticket info
Imagine biting into a perfect little momo dumpling, or a potsticker, or a tamale and finding a meltingly tender mouthful of brisket inside. Last year I attended an event from The New Center for Arts and Culture called Beyond Bubbie’s Kitchen where some of the best chefs in the Boston area were challenged with updating Jewish holiday cuisine. The result was dishes that mixed cultures and went beyond simple updates of recipes to sparking ideas that will become new traditions in young Jewish households.
Well, they are doing it again on Sunday, January 30, 2011! This time my Jewish food idol, Joan Nathan will be at Beyond Bubbie’s Kitchen to give a talk and there will be an expanded menu of foods from soup to dessert. So nu, do you have your ticket already?
Does tasting Michael Scelfo’s (Russell House Tavern) take on bagels and lox with hot smoked arctic char tempt you?
Maybe Steven Brand from Upstairs on the Square could entice you with his braise lamb knishes?
How about Craigie on Main’s Tony Maws giving his take on kasha varnishkas ?
Maybe a bissel wine to wash it down? Central Bottle, Urban Grape and
Narragansett Beer will be sampling beer, wine, and even Kosher scotch.
