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.
