The Forward's Yiddish Chefs are Back With a New Series - Starting With Itzhak Perlman's Potato Salad
Rukhl Schaechter and Eve Jochnowitz, the Yiddish-speaking chefs who appeared here for 20 episodes of their cooking program Est Gezunterheit, are back after their series sponsored by the Forward ended last year.
The new series called Timeless Delicacies offers shorter episodes featuring cultural reflections about food along with quick rundowns of recipes.
Reviving and expanding the series is one of the changes made to the Forward since Schaechter was appointed the new editor earlier this year. Schaechter is the first woman to helm the paper in its 119-year history, its first editor to have been born in the United States, and likely its first editor who is shomer Shabbat.
B'tayavon - Bon appetit!
