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.
