Liz Alpern & Jeffrey Yoskowitz, The Gefilteria

Saturday, December 3, 2016 - 10:30am to 11:15am

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Liz Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz are the co-owners of The Gefilteria, a culinary venture in Brooklyn that reimagines Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine, and co-authors of The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods (Flatiron 2016). Liz’s career in food is driven by her passion for bringing people together. She now works in Brooklyn and around the globe as a cook, recipe tester, educator and entrepreneur. She holds an MBA from Baruch College and has been featured in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for food and wine, as well as The New Yorker and Saveur. Jeffrey fell in love with the art of lacto-fermentation while training as a pickler on an organic farm.  He has since worked in the food world as an entrepreneur, consultant, cook, public speaker, and a writer for The New York Times, The Atlantic, Slate, and Gastronomica. He was also featured in the Forbes’ 30 Under 30.
All demos take place in the CUESAClassroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all. 

A book signing will follow the demonstration.
