Master Class in Sephardic Cuisine

Explore the rich and varied food heritage of the Jews from the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia in this truly unique class. Standing in sharp contrast to the meat and potatoes tradition of the Ashkenazic Jewish communities, Sephardi cuisine reflects the fertility and warmth of these regions and is often characterized by the use of fragrant herbs and spices, fresh and dried fruits and nuts, ground meat, rice, lentils, ...chickpeas and other interesting grains.

Over the course of 5 days, CKCA Dean of Students Chef Avram Wiseman will explore the traditions and tastes of the Jewish people from several countries including Syria, Morocco, Persia/Iran, Yemen, and more. Chef Wiseman has been a professional chef for over thirty years during which time he has cooked in many of the traditional Sephardic communities around New York. We're looking forward to having him as our tour guide for this exploration of the flavors and fragrances of one of the richest culinary traditions in the world.
