Culinary Historians: 97 Orchard with Jane Ziegelman

Delve into the rich food history of the Lower East Side at this lecture and tasting. Focusing on five immigrant families that lived in an Orchard Street tenement at the turn of the 20th century, author Jane Ziegelman will explore the neighborhood's past through the diverse culinary traditions that collided there. The lecture kicks off at 8pm, but arrive half an hour early for a reception and chance to sample some of the recipes featured in Ziegelman's book, 97 Orchard.
