jewish cooking with chef dan scherotter
INSTRUCTOR: chef dan scherotter
Jewish Cooking stretches far beyond kasha, cabbage and brisket. This class will explore how Jews have navigated the myriad of challenges imposed by dietary restrictions and mother nature throughout the European diaspora. Season by season we will prepare dishes each week that collectively form a banquet, from appetizer to dessert. Each term teaches a different meal, various cooking techniques, and ingredients that pair with the Jewish holiday calendar. By the end of the term you will have a complete banquet
cookbook for the season. From caviar to sabayon, these dishes highlight the influence of Jews on fine dining as we know it.
