Drawing from one of the largest collections of Jewish cookbooks in private hands, Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett talks about how she amassed more than 1,000 Jewish cookbooks since childhood. Focusing on the Yiddish cookbooks in her collection, she will explore what they reveal about those who wrote them and those who cooked from them. Free.
