Jewish food is layered with meaning. It’s about eating together, sharing stories and creating a sense of comfort (a factor measured by caloric intake). On Jan. 24, the Contemporary Jewish Museum and Reboot will honor Jewish food traditions with a culinary night of storytelling dubbed “Beyond Bubbie: Stories from the Recipe Box.” Performers include comedian Caitlin Gill, Karen Leibowitz of Mission Street Food and NPR’s the Kitchen Sisters. David Sax, author of “Save the Deli,” will emcee the event, which will culminate with a short video of the Iron Bubbie Knish-Off, followed by a tasting.
