Event description
Schmooze & Infuse: Eastern Europe - Learn some Jewish History, taste infusions and create your own favorite liqueur!

About this Event

Throughout history, Jewish people have been involved in the liquor business. At one time 85% of rural East European Jews were involved in some part of the alcohol business.

"Schmooze & Infuse" is your chance to learn a little Jewish History, taste some interesting infusions and create some delicious recipes of your own.

  • You will taste a few instant infusions at the workshop
  • Learn the importance of the alcohol business to Jews in Eastern Europe
  • Create at least 3 or 4 combinations for home infusion (Note: You will add the alcohol at home for DIY infusions)
  • Since the talk is focused on Eastern Europe, most infusions will be Vodka based

As part of the Q&A we will encourage you to share any alcohol-related family lore.

For example:

  • Your Grandfather had/has a still in the basement
  • If your last name is Brenner or Shenkman your ancestor was probably in the booze business!
  • Your distant cousins had a speakeasy in their kitchen during prohibition
  • How your Uncle made 250 litres of homemade wine for your cousins Bar Mitzvah
  • Etc.
  • No DUI , Vegas or self-incriminating stories please!

Profits from this event go to the Lodzer Center Synagogue.

Kashruth Observed.
