Greenwich Historical Society to explore Jewish cuisine in Afternoon Nosh

Inspired by “An American Odyssey: The Jewish Experience in Greenwich” exhibition, the Greenwich Historical Society’s Afternoon Nosh will enable guests to go deeper into Jewish culture by enjoying a buffet-style lunch and conversation around a table Sunday, March 25, 12:30-2 p.m., Vanderbilt Education Center, Greenwich Historical Society, 39 Strickland Road, Cos Cob.

Sponsored by Garelick & Herbs, the Nosh will feature a short presentation by the Historical Society’s Curator of Education Anna Greco. A chef from Garelick & Herbs will talk about the origins of the items on the menu along with their cultural or religious significance and tips on how to make them. The menu includes traditional Jewish dishes from latkes (potato pancakes) to hamantaschen (triangle-shaped cookies with jam filling). Israeli wine will be available for tasting.

Jewish cuisine represents a diverse collection of traditions from around the world. It has evolved over many centuries, shaped by Jewish dietary laws (kashrut), festivals and sabbath (sabbat) traditions and by the economics, agriculture, and culinary traditions of the many countries where Jews settled.

Members: $30; nonmembers: $45. The fee also grants access to the exhibition, which is open from noon-4 p.m. that day.

RSVP: greenwichhistory.org or call 203-869-6899, Ext. 10.
