Join us for one of our JCC 25th anniversary feature programs!

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience” (James Beard). With this idea in mind, through our Cooking with Rachael: Around the World Dinner Series, we will explore the foods, flavors and history of the Jewish diaspora stopping off in a different country each time. We will make and enjoy vegetarian (with gluten free and vegan options in many cases) dishes inspired by the traditional dishes of each country. On this exciting and tasty journey we will be reminded that while our cuisines may taste different, they share many common elements, among them the intention to nourish not just our bodies but also our spirits. There is a seat for everyone at the table, so grab your passport and let’s go eat around the world!
