Event description

Description

Holocaust survivors arrived in Canada with little more than their memories. Upon building new lives in Toronto, cooking and baking recipes learned before the Holocaust tied survivors to their lost families while providing meaningful connections for their children. Join us for a conversation between food writer Emma Waverman and Holocaust survivor Rose Lipszyc about the power of food and memory with a short cooking demonstration.

Rose Lipszyc grew up in Lublin, Poland and vividly remembers the succulent dishes her mother lovingly prepared for Shabbat and the holidays. She graciously shares her family recipes with the audience. Through this personal encounter with Jewish food, Rose connects us to the timelessness of the power of food to invoke memories of pre-Holocaust Jewish life, the family hearth and to the fact that the Holocaust did not, and could not break the spirit of the Jewish tradition.

Emma Waverman is a writer, reporter and author. She is the food columnist on CBC Radio Here and Now where she talks food trends, stories and recipes. She shares the family love of food with a column in the Globe and Mail that she coauthors with her mother Lucy Waverman. Emma is well-known for her opinionated writing and sense of humour, as well as her solid reporting and interview skills. Her work covers food and food culture, lifestyle, travel and parenting.
