Jewish culinary traditions, from the contours of the Mediterranean to the deep villages of Eastern Europe, are the gastronomic palettes around which unforgettable family moments and inspiring artists and authors are created, from the Singer family to Albert Cohen, from Claude Lelouch to Woody Allen. How can we forget Mangeclous’ long description of his moussaka, or the way a child indulges in a cake in Once Upon a Time in America? The mahJ is organizing a whole day devoted to these traditions, as part of the European Days of Jewish Culture and the Traversées du Marais festival. Family workshops, meetings with authors and presenters, a book sale, genealogical research and a presentation of Grandmas Project, a documentary series honoring the timeless recipes of grandmothers.
