$36 includes a copy of the book and tasting

If we are what we eat, pastrami, latkes and kugel add up to more than clogged arteries. They are portraits of our grandmas’ kitchens, of holiday dinners and of a culture that runs through our veins.

And that’s equally true for flodni, the ancient Hungarian Jewish pastry filled with poppy seed spread, apples, walnuts and plum jam; huevos haminados, Sephardic 7-hour eggs; and carciofi alla Guidia, the deep-fried artichokes of Rome; plus 97 other delicacies.

Explore — and sample — some of these delights and discover what they tell us about our culture, our relationship to food and how we define what is Jewish.
