Gnosh on This: Images from The Jewish Food and Culture Festival
Amidst our season of Lent comes a wonderful respite from self-denial: The 4th Annual Jewish Food and Culture Festival at Temple Israel! How can you resist a real New York Deli-style pastrami on rye with cole slaw and a sour pickle spear? Or a real New York cheesecake from Carnegie's? Or real, homemade stuffed cabbages? Or real knishes? And don't forget the Galilean wines that are kosher for Passover?!
Answer: you can't! And lots of Tallahassee made the trek up Mahan Drive, following their noses and good senses that said, "Matzo Ball Chicken Soup is good for the soul!"
My partner roused me early to help schlep the volunteers from their cars, parked off-site, to the Temple for their crazy day of keeping up with the feeding frenzy.
