Rosh Hashanah in Rome’s Jewish Kitchen

Hosted By: American Jewish University

As a leading authority on Jewish food, Leah Koenig celebrates la cucina Ebraica Romana, one of Europe’s oldest Jewish communities. Rome’s Jewish residents have endured many hardships, including 300 years of persecution inside the Roman Jewish Ghetto. Out of this strife grew resilience, a deeply knit community, and a uniquely beguiling cuisine.
Today, the community thrives on Via del Portico d’Ottavia – the main road in Rome’s Ghetto neighborhood—and beyond. Leah Koenig’s recipes showcase the cuisine’s elegantly understated vegetables, saucy braised meats and stews, rustic pastas, resplendent olive oil–fried foods, and never-too-sweet desserts. Find inspiration this Rosh Hashanah and create a menu with classics of the Roman Jewish repertoire or discover something with AJU’s Michelle Starkman and author Leah Koenig.
