We will leave the JCC at 8:30 am, and return approximately 5:30 pm. First stop is Arthur’s home for breakfast. Then we are off for a great day in “Kosher” Brooklyn with Arthur bringing us to some of his favorite Kosher food hotspots. We will enjoy lunch together at a kosher restaurant.

Arthur Schwartz, aka The Food Maven, was the restaurant critic and executive food editor of the New York Daily
News for 18 years. Perhaps what he’s best known for is as a chameleon—he’s successfully worked in radio, print
media, cookbook publishing, TV, and teaching. Arthur Schwartz also teaches extensively, both demos and hands-on classes. He has a cooking school in Paestum, Italy, just south of the Amalfi Coast, where he conducts week-long classes that also include cultural touring. His work in radio and television is critically acclaimed. For 13 years, Schwartz did a daily broadcast on WOR, receiving the IACP’s Award of Excellence in Electronic Media for his work in radio. Jewish Home Cooking: Yiddish Recipes Revisited published in 2008, won the IACP’s Best American Subject Cookbook award and was nominated for both a James Beard book award and the Sophie Brody Medal of the American Library association. His most recent book, The Southern Italian Table: Authentic Tastes from Traditional Kitchens, was published in 2009.
