The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC is pleased to partner with the Contemporary Art Gallery to present the first evening in our supper club series, The Chosen Food. Each event in this series will showcase a regional style of Jewish cuisine.
Our guest host this evening is Vancouver-based artist Derya Akay, the CAG Burrard Marina Field House resident artist for spring 2017.
Akay will prepare a dinner informed by the family recipes of Jewish community members Sara Ciacci, Leonor Etkin, Claire Hammer, and Debbie Kafka. Several of these women will be present to share the history, memory, and symbolism associated with the dishes served.
