About the Course
In this three-part virtual course, join NYC food insiders, Liz and Jeffrey, as they dive deep into the iconic foods of New York’s Lower East Side. They’ll get hands on in the kitchen to make pickles (class 1), knishes (class 2), and bagels (class 3), and along the way they’ll share the rich history and cultural significance behind the dishes that make New York taste so damn good: bagels and lox, pastrami on rye, and so many more.
Inside the Pickle Barrel will be fun, fast-paced, and action-packed. Each hourlong session will include a chef’s cooking demonstration, a quick and dirty history lesson, plus special guests and interactive storytelling. The chat and Q&A will be flowing, with Liz and Jeffrey ready to respond to your burning culinary queries. Participants will receive a weekly email containing the week’s recipes plus additional videos, readings and links for digging deeper into the week’s topics at your leisure.
Everyone is welcome–whether you toast your bagels or think toasting is sacrilegious (if you don’t know what this means –– you will)! Participants will leave this course with a fuller grasp on the cultural forces that make the Lower East Side so great and a rolodex of recipes to bring these flavors into your own home. Join us for this inaugural course from the folks who brought you The Gefilteria. We’ll transport you to the city we love, and make you an insider, too. About the Instructors
