About Michael Wex:

Award-winning author, Yiddish raconteur and Ashkenaz fave Michael Wex returns to the Festival with a sneak preview of his latest book about Jewish food. In his characteristically colourful fashion, Wex will look at some typical “Jewish” dishes and delicacies – kugel, cholent, tsimmes, calf’s foot jelly, sundry baked goods – and their place in Jewish culture. We’ll learn where they came from, how they have evolved, and why they still have such powerful effect on so many people not otherwise terribly involved with Jewish culture or religious observance. Bromo and Alka-Seltzer might well be discussed. They will not be provided.
