Secret: Some of us Gentiles are crazy about Jewish food. So much so that we'll even date Jewish girls just so we're sure to be invited for brisket at her grandmother's apartment in Delray Beach every year. That's the thing about the second-annual Nosh Fest, South Florida's Jewish food festival: It's like having dozens of bubbes doting on you, asking, insisting, that you try just one more bite.
and especially if chopped liver was cheap, good, and readily
obtainable -- then you know how debilitating it can be to try to live
anywhere but certain portions of the U.S. Eastern seaboard. The festival
is sort of like a pain clinic, only with the best comfort food ever
of the items sound beyond irresistible. Wait, what's stopping us from
converting again? Oh yeah -- that surgery sounds awful.
In addition to all the stuff you can taste, there'll be cooking classes as well. Kids can learn to make hummus. Chef Mindy Kaufman, a capable caterer, will show how she makes tomato caprese, pasta salad, and an adults-only, liquor-fueled dessert.
