Event description

Description

Challah is the most important bread on the Jewish holiday table and is beloved by Sunday morning French toast makers everywhere. In this hands-on class, students will learn the surprising origin behind the gorgeous, braided bread (teaser: it has to do with medieval German lore, witches and potatoes), and examine its evolution throughout history. Then, they will get elbow deep in flour while preparing three distinct takes on traditional challah as well as a variety of spreads and jams served on Jewish tables around the world. Led by author Leah Koenig, the class will feature several dishes from Koenig's most recent book, “The Jewish Cookbook” (Phaidon, 2019), a 400-recipe collection that explores Jewish cuisine from across the globe.

Each ticket purchase includes a copy of “The Jewish Cookbook.”

Recipes in this class include:

  • Pan de Calabaza (Sephardic Pumpkin Challah)
  • Apple Butter Challah
  • Berches (German Potato Challah)
  • A variety of spreads:
    • Hungarian Chopped Egg and Onion
    • Matbucha (Tomato-Pepper Relish)
    • Tahini-Honey Spread
    • Lekvar (Prune Butter)

Leah Koenig's writing and recipes have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine's Grub Street, Saveur, Epicurious, Food52, TASTE, Departures and Tablet magazine, among other publications. She is the author of six cookbooks, including the recently released “The Jewish Cookbook” as well as “Modern Jewish Cooking” and “The Little Book of Jewish Feasts.” In addition to writing, Koenig leads cooking demonstrations and classes all over the world. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and two kids.
