History, Heritage & Herring explores Jewish Eastern Europe through a distinctive culinary lens, taking participants to some of the most culturally rich and dynamic places in all of Jewish history. We will visit sites of major landmarks and Jewish heritage, as well as markets, restaurants, farms, forests, and breweries, where we will sample, learn about, and make some of the foods and drinks that added color and flavor to Jewish life in pre-war Europe.
Discover what contemporary Polish and Lithuanian cuisines owe to the legacy of Jewish cooks, bakers, and spice traders. Explore the regional landscape through cooking workshops with local experts and our three extraordinary trip leaders.
