Nourishing Our Souls, a Kabbalah Passover Culinary Experience with Chef Alexis Sicklick
Sunday, March 21 1pm- 2:30pm MST/ 3pm – 4:30pm EST
The Essence of Identity Layered Charoset
A dish that evokes the comfort of the classic and that same idea of the Jews building with bricks, but with each layer corresponding to a different part of one’s identity. With the apple remaining at the center, it is like the true essence is always there, transported towards different directions thanks to the support of all the additions, both old and new.
A dish that encompasses the themes of further noticing our identity, breaking away from habits, and allowing our emotions that are trapped between the different layers of ourselves to be refreshed by something bright but also bitter (the collection of our past tears that needs to be shattered along with overcoming our internal struggles to move forward). By slicing the bulb open and letting the vinaigrette seep through, we are reflecting, reminiscing, and liberating ourselves from the past (and escaping the confines we put ourselves in with our own personal limitations).
Belgian Endive, Spiced Citrus Vinaigrette, Horseradish Yogurt, Shattered Matzah
