If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Not Your Bubbie’s Shakshuka

shakshukaFor Road Trips Foodies traveling to the southeast later this month, here’s a unique cooking competition to sample. A traditional Middle Eastern dish will be tweaked by two different regional cooking styles.

Not Your Bubbie’s Shakshuka“, an Ashkenazi vs. Sephardi cookoff, will begin at 5:30 p.m. February 23, 2020, in Congregation Dor Tikvah, 1645 Raoul Wallenberg Boulevard, Charleston, South Carolina.

The cookoff is an annual fundraiser for the Modern Orthodox Jewish Congregation Dor Tikvah (Generation of Hope) in the West Ashley area. The public is invited to join in.

Now for a definition of terms. Shakshuka is a Mediterranean classic dish made from eggs, tomatoes, onions, peppers and cumin. The Ashkenazi are considered to be descendants of the Jewish diaspora population who coalesced in the Holy Roman Empire around the end of the first millennium. The Sephardi are descendants of Jews who lived in Spain and Portugal prior to 1492. (Needless to say, the cooking styles from the two disparate regions vary widely.)

And bubbie? It’s the Yiddish word for “grandmother”.
