    Katz’s. Russ & Daughters. Zabar’s. Yonah Schimmel’s. Barney Greengrass. Mile End Delicatessen. These are names, both old and new, that define a distinctly New York brand of comfort food. Join a panel of leading food writers, purveyors and restaurant owners for a panel discussion about the powerful connection between Jewish food and memory, and why, “at this moment in 21st-century New York, the cutting edge of cuisine is the beet-heavy, cabbage-friendly, herring-loving diet of 19th-century Jews in Eastern Europe” (Julia Moskin, 5/27/14, The New York Times).

    Noah Bermanoff, founder, creative director and managing partner of Mile End Delicatessen
    Eve Jochnowitz, translator, adapter, and annotator of The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook, written in 1938 and forthcoming from Schocken Books this spring
    Mark Russ Federman, author of Russ & Daughters: Reflections and Recipes from the House that Herring Built (2013)
    Laura Silver, author of Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food (2014)
    Julia Moskin (moderator), reporter for the New York Times Food section
