Event description

Description

The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC is pleased to present The Chosen Food, a series of dinners showcasing a regional style of Jewish cuisine.

For our October dinner, Judy Stoffman will share the traditional recipes her family brought with them from Hungary. Join us for this very special evening.

Jews have lived in Hungary since Medieval times, and enjoyed a particularly liberal period under the Austro-Hungarian empire, when they were given the right to own land, among other advances. Such was their prosperity and confidence that in 1859, the Jews of Budapest built the grandest synagogue in Europe, the Dohany Temple, of which the Central Synagogue in New York is a copy. Hungarian Jewish food illustrates the extent to which Jews adopted Magyar culture. It takes the classic paprika-flavoured dishes of the Hungarian kitchen and simply leaves the sour cream out of the meat dishes.
Budapest-born journalist Judy Stoffman will be our guide on October 29 to Hungarian Jewish favourites including Rantott Csirke, Uborka Salata,and Flodni, the latter a sumptuous dessert filled with walnuts, chocolate and poppy seeds.

This event is presented in partnership with the Louis Brier Jewish Aged Foundation.

Dinner will be prepared by Chef Lior Ben-Yehuda


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

  • A full meal of traditional Hungarian Jewish dishes
  • Stories about the family history behind each dish
