Jane Zeigelman To Speak At The Hamptons Synagogue By Susan Galardi Author Jane Zeigelman will speak about her book, 97 Orchard, at the Hamptons Synagogue September 1. In the book, Ziegelman explores the culinary life around the turn of the 20th century on New York’s Lower East Side – a city within a city – where Germans, Irish, Italians, and Eastern European Jews attempted to forge a new life. While health officials worried that pushcarts were unsanitary and that pickles made immigrants too excitable to be good citizens, a culinary revolution was taking place in the streets of what had been a culturally English city. Along the East River, German immigrants founded breweries, dispensing lager in dozens of beer gardens that opened on the Bowery. Russian Jews opened tea parlors serving blintzes and strudel next door to Romanian nightclubs that specialized in goose pastrami. On the street, Italian peddlers hawked

the cheese-and-tomato pies known as “pizzarelli,� while Jews sold knishes and squares of halvah. Gradually, as nativeborn Americans began to explore the immigrant ghetto, they discovered the culinary enticements of their foreignborn neighbors. 97 Orchard charts the roots of our collective culinary heritage and describes how native-born Americans, wary of foreigners and their strange eating habits, pushed aside their culinary prejudices to sample the immigrants’ curious foods, including bagels, pickles, sauerkraut, hot dogs and pizza, and eventually to claim them as their own. Jane Zeigelman is the director of the Tenement Museum’s forthcoming culinary center; founder and director of Kids Cook!, a multi-ethnic cooking program for children, and has presented food-related talks/cooking classes in libraries and schools across New York City. Her writing on food has appeared in a number of
