A toast to French and Jewish cuisine, beer dinners and more on the culinary calendar
It's World Kugel Day at Mizel Museum, 400 South Kearney Street, and if you're unfamiliar with the celebrated dish, Westword's arts and culture editor Susan Froyd offers a perfect explanation:
"Kugel (if you're not lucky enough to already know this) comprises a variety of baked puddings -- some sweet and made with noodles, some savory and potato- or vegetable-based -- that are a mainstay of Ashkenazic Jewish-mother cooking (in which everyone's mom makes the best), and they are all absolutely delish, in every comfort-foodie sense of the word."
The celebration runs from 2 to 5 p.m. and costs $10 for members, $15 nonmembers or $25 for a family, delicious eats included. Visit the museum's website for more information.
