Women of the J, a program of the Boulder JCC, welcomes Leah Koenig, Cookbook Author, on Wednesday, November 29 at 6:30 pm. The program will be held at the Boulder JCC.
Join Leah for a talk and gathering in celebration of her latest cookbook, “PORTICO: Cooking and Feasting in Rome’s Jewish Kitchen.” Leah will share the fascinating story behind Rome’s historic Jewish community (which dates back over 2,000 years and remains vibrant today) and its uniquely delicious cuisine filled with simple but elegant vegetable dishes, saucy braised meats, beguiling desserts, and an obsession with olive oil fried foods.
Following Leah’s talk, participants will have the opportunity to sample a variety of Roman Jewish desserts and dips and get their copies of Portico signed.
