What you'll do

Brooklyn is the home to many cuisines, cultures, and artisanal shops. We will meet at a local butcher, and select some items for our dinner. From there, we will pick out desserts at a local bakery. We'll make our way to a typical Brooklyn apartment - in [my] post-war building where many immigrant families moved in during the 1940s. Together we'll roll up our sleeves and make the main course. We'll enjoy some traditional appetizers, and then sit down to delight in a four course meal, pulling from my mother, grandfather, and great-grandfather's recipe book. Along each part of the experience, I will walk us through the diaspora of one Jewish/Brooklyn journey — from boats that brought my predecessors from Europe to Ellis Island at the turn of the century, and about each generation's personal, professional, & culinary journey here in New York.

Rose Lizzie

Food is the way to share, learn, and experience a culture. I'm the fourth generation of my family to live, cook, and host in New York City. My great-grand grandfather, and grandfather, owned Jewish delicatessens in Brooklyn, and now I cook their food, hosting new friends to fall in love with the warmth and intimacy of this special cuisine of New York. I have been a food journalist, traveling and reporting on the cuisine close to my family, and to other families'. I have hosted hundreds of meals in my home, and I pull recipes from my family's repertoire.

What's included

Food
3 course meal - we'll have something similar to a Shabbat dinner - with Challah, soup, meat with vegetables & potatoes.

Where you'll be

First, we'll start at a local butcher, then pick up some sweets at a family-owned bakery. Both are one of a kind and special to Williamsburg, a northern immigrant community that has been home to Jewish newcomers, Italian/Polish/Puerto Rican families, and now a new generation that loves and appreciates the rich cuisine each community has to offer. Then we'll go to a typical Brooklyn apartment! Up 4 flights of stairs (and no elevator, sadly).
