Learn new takes on Passover traditions

Laura Frankel

Gear up for Passover at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 19, with Spertus Institute Chef Laura Frankel’s new takes on culinary traditions. Frankel, executive chef of kosher catering at Spertus and author of “Jewish Cooking for All Seasonsand “Jewish Slow Cooker Recipes,” will show how to turn the usual festival of starch and cholesterol into a vibrant celebration.

Last year, the chef demonstrated Yemenite charoset, poached halibut, green olive pesto, almond flour, and olive oil chiffon cake. This year will be an all new program.

Following the program, Frankel will sign copies of her books, available for purchase at the event. Tickets are $25, and the class takes place at Bernard Horwich JCC, 3003 W. Touhy, Chicago. Free parking is available.
