11 Cool Jewish Foods That’d Make Your Bubbe Plotz By Sarah Spigelman Richtersorce


60 top restaurateurs, chefs, farmers, entrepreneurs, bloggers, cookbook authors, and other Jewish food world stars will gather at The Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains for The Harvest, a first-ever festival of learning, cooking and connecting to serve up Jewish cuisine as the next major global food movement.

In three-day of gathering, Sept. 30Oct. 2, leaders from the world of Jewish food will explore such critical challenges as humane ritual slaughter and kosher dietary guidelines as part of a dialogue aimed at enriching Jewish cuisine as a global food trend and create inspired feasts.

In attendance will be a Who’s Who of Jewish food professionals, including writer and tour guide Katharine Romanow; acclaimed chef and author Ann Cooper; Goodie Girl CEO Shira Berk; wine expert Alexander Fox; Israeli restaurateur Noa Margalit; cookbook celebrity author Joan Nathan; Gefilteria founder Jeffrey Yoskowitz; and Nigel Savage, founder of Hazon, one of The Harvest’s partner organizations.

The participants were chosen because they identify as both food professionals and Jews, identities that can be confounding, frustrating, and ambiguous— and also fulfilling, meaningful, and imbued with a deep sense of connection, explained Sarah Kornhauser, one of The Harvest’s directors

“So many of the important innovators and industry disruptors in the food world are Jewish; we want to tap into — and explore — that energy source at The Harvest Gathering, ” said Kornhauser. “The purpose of The Harvest is to unite this group, giving them room to examine and expand their connection to food, Judaism, and each other.”

Participants in The Harvest will enjoy the mountain setting with outdoor excursions, feast with top chefs and restaurateurs from around the country, celebrate at a late-night lakeside Asado-style fire pit roast and stir up a unique take on mixology, utilizing Colorado’s newest “green industry.”

The Harvest gathering is organized by Kornhauser and Josh Dinar, in partnership with Connection Points, an initiative of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
