by Ken Tsui | From Vienna to Vancouver, Jewish culinary traditions have found their place in just about every far flung corner of the world, all while adopting the influences of local ingredients – the tastes of diverse cultures – along the way. The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC is celebrating the crossroads of global Kosher-style flavour starting April 2nd with “The Chosen Food Supper Club”. For $40 on Sunday evenings between April and September, this dinner series will give guests a chance to taste the wealth of tradition in Jewish cuisine through a dinner paired with stories from members of Vancouver’s Jewish community.

Details of the first event are as follows:

The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC is pleased to partner with the Contemporary Art Gallery to present the first evening in our supper club series, The Chosen Food. Each event in this series will showcase a regional style of Jewish cuisine.

Our guest host this evening is Vancouver-based artist Derya Akay, the CAG Burrard Marina Field House resident artist for spring 2017.

Expanding on recent projects, Akay is collaborating with women elders from a range of cultural backgrounds to explore and share local and diasporic culinary traditions through a series of workshops and meals. This convivial partaking of food is a gateway to oral history, which Akay understands as both storytelling and the sensations and memories summoned through communal eating.

Akay will prepare a dinner informed by the family recipes of Jewish community members Sara Ciacci, Leonor Etkin, Claire Hammer, and Debbie Kafka. Several of these women will be present to share the history, memory, and symbolism associated with the dishes served.

TICKETS | $40
