Tonight: The Art of Smoking and Curing

As Jews, we have perfected the art of smoking, salting and curing meat and fish. To enhance your personal knowledge, you can attend Smoke & Salt: Cure-ated Tastes and Candid Conversation, tonight at 7 pm at Shelsky’s of Brooklyn, part of the Workmen’s Circle Taste of Jewish Culture series.

While noshing on a special menu of smoked foods (plus drinks and dessert) from local Brooklyn spots including Peck’s Homemade and Fletcher’s Brooklyn BBQ, you’ll take a deep-dive into the subject as Tablet editor-in-chief Alana Newhouse hosts a panel of Jewish food connoisseurs including Mimi Sheraton, Ed Levine (Serious Eats), Max Falkowitz (Saveur) and Gabriella Gershenson (Every Day With Rachel Ray).

Tickets are $45 and include all food and alcohol.

A message from our editor-in-chief Jodi Rudoren

We're building on 127 years of independent journalism to help you develop deeper connections to what it means to be Jewish today.

With so much at stake for the Jewish people right now — war, rising antisemitism, a high-stakes U.S. presidential election — American Jews depend on the Forward's perspective, integrity and courage.

—  Jodi Rudoren, Editor-in-Chief
