My grandmother’s brisket was epic. Her cheese blintzes were so remarkable, I can never bring myself to buy the frozen kind. So when I found out about Beyond Bubbe’s Kitchen, where 15 of the Boston area’s most talented chefs put a new twist on traditional Jewish dishes, I took note. The event is put on by Prism, the New Center for Arts & Culture’s program for Jewish young professionals.
Here’s the entire menu for you to peruse. I can’t wait to try Julio de Haro of Estragon’s take on brisket, which will be braised in pomegranate juice, and served with pomegranate seeds and onion confit. Or Erwin Ramos of Ole’s blintzes: tamales de chocolate with sweet fruit topping.
The event will be hosted by Michael Schlow of Radius. Several chefs will provide short demonstrations. All guests will receive a booklet of recipes for the dishes prepared that evening; last year’s included Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger’s East-West Brisket Potstickers.
Plus, my personal Jewish cookbook hero, Joan Nathan, is the guest speaker.
Tickets are an amazingly reasonable $36 if you’re 39 or younger, or $136 for 40+.
Beyond Bubbe’s Kitchen will take place on Sunday January 30th at 5:30 PM at the Moakley Courthouse, 1 Courthouse Way, South Boston. For more information call 617-531-4610 or go to NewCenterBoston.org.
