Inspiring Jewish Cooking: Spices, Herbs, and More!

October 19, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM


Emma's Torch slider (2)Spices and herbs have a significant place in Jewish foods dating back to Moses’ exodus from Egypt. Today, heritage spices are being used to create a new modern Jewish cuisine. As part of our Taste of Jewish Culture Series, join us at Emma’s Torch Café in Brooklyn where Chefs Lior Lev Sercarz and Alex Raij will take us on a tour of international Jewish cooking.

Growing up on a kibbutz in Israel, Chef Sercarz takes his cooking passion from his Middle Eastern background, while Chef Raij was inspired by Aroma of Aleppo, a cookbook written by a Syrian Jewish home cook. Emma’s Torch is an organization that trains refugees in food service jobs. Join us for great food, inspiring stories, and Jewish connections.


Location Has Changed: Due to overwhelming demand, location has moved to Atelier Roquette, 63 Commerce St (between Richards St. and Van Brunt St., around the corner from Emma’s Torch Cafe)
