The flavors of Jewish cuisine

Jewish cuisine is considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. It is devoid of beef and pork fat. Traditional Jewish dishes are very diverse, often based on fresh vegetables and fruits, as well as legumes.

Recently, at culinary workshops organized as part of the project “World on a Plate”, project no.: 2021-2-PL01-ESC30-SOL-000040182, the lecturer, introduced seniors to the world of Jewish cuisine. As part of cultural activities, she introduced the participants of the project to Jewish culture in various corners of the world, characteristic Jewish dishes and their method of preparation, origin and meaning.

In the next part of the classes, the seniors had the opportunity to learn about both the methods of preparation and the flavors of Jewish dishes, such as:

  • CYMES – Jewish carrot,
  • CZULENT – goulash meat and vegetable dish,
  • HAMANTASCHEN – Jewish cookies are also called “Haman’s Ears”.

We invite you to watch a short photo report from the culinary workshops of Jewish cuisine.
