As far back as the 2nd century B.C.E., Jews - including Jews from Libya - have made their home in Rome and represent the oldest Jewish community in the world outside Israel. "La cucina ebraica romana" - Roman Jewish cooking - is a product of Jewish dietary guidelines as well as the community’s forced isolation into a gated ghetto for 300 years, which resulted in a unique spin on traditional Italian and Jewish cuisine, using what limited ingredients were available. In this class we'll prepare concia (fried, marinated zucchini); polpette di pollo al pistcchio (chicken meatballs with pistachios); and Kifte bil Haut (fish-balls simmered in tomato sauce).
