Savory Pie
with Faith Kramer

Hear how Faith Kramer, author of 52 Shabbats: Friday Night Dinners Inspired by a Global Jewish Kitchen and Bay area freelance writer and recipe developer, overcame her fear of filo and became an enthusiastic proponent of all things filo, especially savory baked goods. She will demonstrate her Spinach Dill Pie, her oversized take on of the individual Sephardic Jewish pastries known as a boreka and delve into some of the history of this thin, flaky dough. She will also be talking about her book, the global nature of Jewish food and food ways. Faith Kramer, who will show us her Spinach Dill Pie wrapped in Filo dough. faithkramer.com
