Meet Emily Paster

  • August 26, 2017

The author of The Joys of Jewish Preserving comes to DC on Mon., Aug. 28th, at 7PM.


Throughout Jewish history, preserved foods have served both practical and spiritual needs, keeping alive a people and their faith through sojourns in deserts and isolation in ghettos. In her second book, Paster, a D.C. native now based in Chicago where she writes the West of the Loop blog, presents seventy-five recipes. Both traditional and brand new, these cover jams and fruit preserves, pickles, and holiday dishes. Each is illustrated with beautiful color photographs and accompanied by stories contextualizing it within Jewish tradition.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
