Ultimate Passover Food Guide and Cooking Demo with Leah Koenig

Sunday, March 21 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join Leah as she explores how we can take our Passover foods to the next level. She will present a live demonstration of two dishes, and recipes will be provided. Get ready to learn how to craft a delicious mina (Sephardic matzo pie with leeks, dill, and feta), and a sweet and simple dessert of chocolate dipped figs.

Leah Koenig is the author of six cookbooks including The Jewish Cookbook (Phaidon, 2019) – a 400+ recipe collection of Jewish dishes from around the globe, and Modern Jewish Cooking (Chronicle, 2015). The Jewish Cookbook was named a “Best New Cookbook” for Fall 2019 by Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Eater, The Kitchn, and Forbes. As a freelancer, her writing and recipes have appeared in The New York Times, New York Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Epicurious, Food52, Departures, and Tablet, among other publications. In addition to writing, Leah leads cooking demonstrations and workshops around the country (and now via Zoom!). She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and two children.

There is no fee, but please RSVP for planning purposes. This event is held virtually on Zoom. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event.
