Call for Recipes

Dear members,

This year the Lithuanian Jewish Community will be actively involved in the European Jewish Culture Day program and is organizing different events to present the Jewish languages and Jewish cultural heritage to the public. European Jewish Culture Day will happen September 4, 2016.

The Bagel Shop Café will have on offer Jewish culinary heritage and is asking you to recall dishes made by your parents and grandparents, to find handwritten recipes (including in Yiddish) and to share them. We will prepare the best examples and offer them to the public during the event, and publish the recipes and descriptions.

Please send a short description of your family’s cooking which reflects authentic Jewish culinary traditions and copies or photos of handwritten recipes, stories about your favorite dish, family holiday photos and whatever else best illustrates the dish and your family traditions.

We eagerly look forward to your letters, photos and suggestions till July 22, 2016.
