Cooking up a storm at UJW fundraiser

  • CommunityUJWKitchen
The Union of Jewish Women Johannesburg hosted more than 100 women at a cooking demonstration by famed New York chef and author of “The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods”, Liz Alpern.

Alpern was in South Africa at the invitation of Limmud South Africa, to share her culinary expertise, skills and passion for Ashkenazi cuisine. Johannesburg’s own kitchen star, Caron Melamed, assisted Alpern throughout the presentation.

Alpern created recipes from her recipe book, including pickles, latkes and sauce, and guests were treated to a delicious taste of what she was cooking.

The event was in aid of the Jewish Community Fund launch for 2017-2019. Proceeds of the event go towards assisting many beneficiaries in our own community, including panic buttons for some of Kosher Mobile Meal recipients, our Brain Boost stimulation group and contributions to a variety of Jewish organisations, including Hatzolah, CSO, DL Link, Malka Ella Foundation, Ohr Natanel and the Friendship Circle.
