VIDEO: Three klezmer stars busy in the kitchen

This week, you can watch klezmer sensations Frank London, Sarah Gordon and Lorin Sklamberg preparing some favorite Hanukkah dishes in the kitchen, singing while they work.

The program, called ESN, was produced by the National Yiddish Theater – Folksbiene. It will be streaming until the last day of Hanukkah, December 6.

The inspiration to put together a cooking demo where klezmer musicians and singers cook and sing together came from Gordon’s mother, the late Yiddish diva, Adrienne Cooper.

The program is free but viewers are welcome to give a donation to the Folksbiene. To see which goodies Sklamberg, Gordon and London have chosen to prepare, click here.
