About the Program
Take a fresh look at the Jewish holiday of Passover with top LA forager, naturalist, and self-styled “culinary alchemist” Pascal Baudar (The New Wildcrafted Cuisine: Exploring the Exotic Gastronomy of Local Terroir) and Rob Eshman, writer of the blog Foodaism and former editor-in-chief of the Jewish Journal.
With the flavors and themes of Passover in mind, Baudar and Eshman will discuss the array of plants that grow wild on local hillsides, some having “migrated” from other countries and others native to California. Baudar will share samples of foraged greens to try, and Eshman will note which are especially relevant to Passover dishes.
**Note: A light tasting of Passover treats conceived by Baudar, Eshman, and Skirball Chef Sean Sheridan follows the program, but there will not be a meal served.
Books available for purchase. A book signing follows the program.
