Zoe Kanan:

All About Desserts

Forget dry sponge cake and sherbet to top off your spectacular meal. The James Beard–nominated pastry chef Zoe Kanan, who ran the pastry program at The Freehand, will take us into uncharted American confectionary and frozen waters based on her Texas roots. With her guidance, you will learn to make a cardamom and lemon macaroon tart, a matzo meal and sunflower seed take on her grandmother’s chocolate lace cookies and, for vegans, a no-churn spiced peanut-date ice cream.

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center Cooking School: Passover Around the World

Chopped liver, matzo ball soup from the Manischewitz package recipe, your mother’s brisket and the same old macaroons . . . Sure, there’s something reassuring about recycling the seder menu your family has used for three generations. But there’s also something intriguing about mixing things up.

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center has assembled a team of all-star chefs who will not only expand your culinary repertoire but will offer you a gastronomic tour of how the Jewish world celebrates our Festival of Liberation.

All sessions will be moderated by Gabriella Gershenson, James Beard Award–nominated food journalist and an editor of The 100 Most Jewish Foods and On the Hummus Route.
