In Conversation with Emily Goodstein
- This event has passed.
When Laura Silver’s favorite knish shop went out of business, the native New Yorker sank into mourning, but then she sprang into action. She embarked on a round-the-world quest for the origins and modern-day manifestations of the iconic potato pie, from Mrs. Stahl’s bakery in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn to a hunt across three continents for the pastry that shaped her identity.
Silver mines knish lore for stories of entrepreneurship, survival, and major deliciousness. Knish connections to Eleanor Roosevelt and rap music? In Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food, Silver unearths intriguing anecdotes involving the starchy snack and lays the foundation for a global knish renaissance.
In conversation with Emily Goodstein, a Jewish soul food evangelist. When not delicatessen hopping, Goodstein spends her time on her yoga mat, behind the camera as a birth photographer, or perfecting an online marketing strategy for one of her many non-profit clients. She bought a Kitchen Aid mixer with her Bat Mitzvah money.
