Beth Am Women Easy Entertaining: Make-Ahead Mexican Recipes from our Kitchen to Yours

Sunday, July 11, 2021 2 Av 5781

4:00 PM - 5:30 PMZoom

Join Beth Am Women (BAW) for a fun intimate and casual gathering of women to learn about the influence of Mexican Cooking in the Jewish Community in Mexico. We will gather over Zoom to watch Silvia Gitlin, born and raised in Mexico City, prepare an easy and healthy “Make-ahead Menu'' perfect for summer entertaining, and schmooze (virtually) in each other’s kitchen.

We will share conversations and stories of where our families migrated from, and how they adapted their traditional recipes to the countries they migrated to, as Silvia Gitlin demonstrates preparing gazpacho (a cold vegetable soup), and shares with us how to create a tasty “Tostada Bar” with different fun and healthy toppings, fit for a crowd.  We will also share a  bonus Jewish Mexican dessert recipe.

This is one of our periodic home cooking events led by congregants not only to learn how to cook, but also to spend some time sharing stories, and meeting in small groups to get to know our fellow BAW members and to support each other.
Come and join us to explore easy entertaining with Mexican style summer recipes that show how culture and food blend. You can come and watch with a beverage of your choice, or cook along with us. During the course of the event, we will have a small breakout group to give people a chance to meet each other and socialize. We can imagine ourselves tasting the delicious food in each other’s kitchens while we have a conversation, and connect with new and old friends putting the stories and the food as our centerpiece. All women are welcome.
There is no charge for this event. At the point of registration there will be some optional links for donations if you want to contribute, we appreciate your donations to the Day Worker Center of Mountain View.

We will send the recipes with ingredient lists and the Zoom access link before the event. Please register by Friday, July 9, 4:00 PM using the form below. Space is limited so please only sign up if you plan to attend. If you can’t make it, the event will be recorded and the recipes will be available for everyone with the recording.
If you have questions about this event please contact one of the event organizers, either Silvia Gitlin or Irene Lefton.
