“Roman Kosher 2020”

By Tony Villani

 A movie night with a Q&A, cooking demo and degustation

Yiddishland presents a movie screening paired with a Q&A, cooking demo and degustation. “Roman Kosher 2020” is intended as a tasty culinary journey through Roman Jewish cuisine in its traditional and innovative incarnations with master chef Giovanni Terracina. While introducing and highlighting the work of a renowned kosher chef and a variety of delicious Roman Jewish dishes, this surprising and tasty tour traces the rich and textured history and tradition of Jewish Rome and its unique community through food. “Roman Kosher” was shot entirely on location in Rome’s former Jewish Ghetto, now a veritable crossroads of cultures and ethnic diversity where locals and tourists, Gentiles and Jews coexist remarkably well without clashing.
