Wednesday, February 28: The German-Jewish Cookbook
Jackson Heights' own Sonya Gropman will be here with her mother Gabrielle Rossmer Gropman for the neighborhood premiere of their fabulous book, The German-Jewish Cookbook, a fascinating collection of delicious recipes, history, and personal anecdotes.
“With a preservationist zeal and a modern day appetite, Sonya and Gaby pay a long-overdue tribute to the fascinating German-Jewish culinary traditions. Through charming stories and mouthwatering recipes they bring that almost-vanished gastronomic culture to life—and the results are delectable.”—Anya von Bremzen
