The Jewish Community of Venice is setting up a Jewish cooking school. It doesn’t seem to be operating yet, but organizers promise more information soon.
According to an announcement, its goal is to “document and revive ancient traditions, everyday dishes and menus for the holidays, according to the general local customs and variations seen in families.”
Organizers add that they are interested in collecting all the documentation that available: cookbooks, reports, family recipes, publications, etc. in the various Jewish communities around Italy and to meet directly with anyone who is able and willing to collaborate on the initiative.
For further information contact:
Mailing address: c/o Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni, Cannaregio 2873- 30121 Venezia
Telephone: +39 041 5237565 – fax +39 041 723922
Meanwhile…. you can find out about Jewish Italian cuisine on the web site Dinner in Venice—a blog by Venice-born Alessandra Rovati that includes lots of recipes, history, anecdotes, etc
