Announcing: Village SCHMALTZY

Announcing: Village SCHMALTZY


Village Schmaltzy: 5 dishes. 5 stories. So Jewish.
Monday, November 6th, 7pm — 9pm
Salmugundi Club
47 5th Ave, New York, NY 10003

Join the Jewish Food Society for Schmaltzy, an evening of storytelling that combines two of our favorite pastimes: kibbitzing and eating. It’s kind of like The Moth, but with pastrami egg rolls.

We’re teaming up with the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation to feature a lineup of poets, chefs, and food mavens that live, work, and create in the Village. Hear the tales behind the recipes, then eat the food they made you crave. Space is limited, get your tickets here and see the full lineup of talent below.

Emceed by Mitchell Davis of the James Beard Foundation (and a certified matzo ball king) — plus, longtime Village resident Mimi Sheraton will make an appearance.
