Event description

Description

The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC is pleased to present the sixth evening in our supper club series, The Chosen Food. Each event in this series will showcase a regional style of Jewish cuisine.

This evening we journey to Montreal (in spirit) for authentic smoked meat sandwiches. Our guide on this culinary adventure is Michael Estrella, owner and chef at Estrella's Delicatessen, who will fill our bellies with delicious food and our minds with stories about the origins of this legendary cuisine. We'll learn the differences between smoked meat and its brisket cousins: New York pastrami, New England corned beef, Southern US barbecue brisket, as well as Hong Kong and Korean traditional dishes. We'll discuss how this relatively cheap cut of meat came to hold cultural significance for many different groups.


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

  • A full meal including smoked meat sandwiches, pickles, and babka (chocolate pastry)
  • Stories about the family history behind each dish
  • Great conversation
  • Recipes to try at home
  • All food is kosher-style, but not certified kosher


The Chosen Food Supper Club occurs over ten Sundays between April and September, 2017. It is part of the JMABC 2017 public programming series Feeding Community, celebrating the important role of food in maintaining Jewish tradition and history through generations of BC Jews. Other components of Feeding Community include the podcast The Kitchen Stories, and the four-part event series Nourishing Tradition, offered in collaboration with the Jewish Seniors Alliance. Further information about these and other JMABC programs can be found at the JMABC website, jewishmuseum.ca
