Cooking with Granny’s Recipes

Cooking with Granny’s Recipes

“Cooking with Granny’s Recipes” is part of a broader project to create a cookbook based on original talks about food and feasts.

Project participants are of various ages, with an interest in Jewish everyday culture, cuisine, ethnography and history. A series of lectures and cooking classes are dedicated to authentic Ashkenazi cuisine, based on material drawn from ethnographic expeditions to Ukraine by the Russian State University for the Humanities. Through these lectures and classes, participants have been able to discover local cuisine and specialties, and benefit from an increasingly lost, cross-generational knowledge transfer.

Goals and objectives

  • Introduce and promote Jewish traditions and culture through lectures and cooking classes on traditional Jewish cuisine
