Bake the most delicious Rosh hashanah goodies with Genie Milgrom, in the comfort of your home via a zoom link together with people from all over the world.
Genie Milgrom is a Miami based author, born and raised catholic, famous worldwide for her capacity to retrace the genealogy of her 15 grandmothers up to the first Jewish one who was forced to convert during the inquisition.
Her latest book, Recipes of My 15 Grandmothers, is based on a recipe book she found recently, hidden away at Genie’s mother’s house.
It features a collection of recipes and stories from the times of the Crypto-Jews – openly Catholic during the Spanish Inquisition while practicing their Judaism underground – through the present. The grandmothers of the family devised clever ways to disguise the fact that they were still keeping kosher.
Until modern times, Genie’s family, unaware of their Jewish roots, passed many of the Jewish customs on in the form of these recipes, their true legacy.
