The Future of Taste


Join Taste Talks & Traif for a Special Yom Kippur Dinner!

Northside Media Group

Join Taste Talks and Traif on Saturday, September 14 at 6pm for a special Yom Kippur dinner.  In chef Joseph's own words, "the dishes are reflective of some of the ingredients that I've enjoyed with my family over the years for Yom Kippur, but certainly Traif'd out. I like the juxtaposition of these two ideas. 1. The obvious, that it's a Traif family Yom Kippur and 2. Tonight, i'm Jewish and so is Traif--so, it's a little less rebellious and a little more traditional. It's not kosher, but it's Jewish in the way I was raised."
