Special Jewish Food Series Lunch Program with Local Chefs, Authors, Food Writers

In preparation for the High Holy Days, join author, food writer and chef Carol Goodman Kaufman for conversation around our community table about food history and culinary writing and enjoy a home-cooked kosher lunch featuring one of her favorite recipes for Sukkot or Simchat Torah (Persian Jeweled Rice with Pomegranate Seeds).

Carol has been writing about food, its history and its travels since 2009. Her regular features appear in the Jewish press (including the Berkshire Jewish Voice) and in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. Other pieces have appeared in the Boston Globe, The Forward, and Berkshire Magazine. When not cooking (and sampling), she pens children’s books and mysteries. Her first novel, The First Murder, was released in April 2024.

All are welcome!  Advance lunch reservations are required and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.  Suggested donation of $3 for adults over age 60.  $7 for all others.
