Please join CBT’s Adult Learning Committee and Sisterhood for brunch as we welcome mother-daughter cookbook authors, Gabrielle Rossmer Gropman and Sonya Gropman (“The German-Jewish Cookbook: Recipes & History of a Cuisine”) for a talk and food tasting.  The pair will discuss their inspiration and nine-year process for writing the book, as well as provide samples of their Apple Pear Kugel.  We will serve brunch items and beverages. Copies of the cookbook will be available for purchase.

The cookbook features recipes for German-Jewish cuisine as it existed in Germany prior to World War II, and as refugees later adapted it in the United States and elsewhere. Because these dishes differ from more familiar Jewish food, they will be a discovery for many people. With a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, this indispensable collection of recipes includes numerous soups, both chilled and hot; vegetable dishes; meats, poultry, and fish; fruit desserts; cakes; and the German version of challah, Berches. These elegant and mostly easy-to-make recipes range from light summery fare to hearty winter foods. The Gropmans have honored the original recipes Gabrielle learned after arriving as a baby in Washington Heights from Germany in 1939, while updating their format to reflect contemporary standards of recipe writing.

The Gropmans have appeared in the Boston area, New York, and Germany, in addition to other locations. The duo and their cookbook were featured in a recent Boston Globe article.
