Spoonbread, shnecken and sweet and sour Passover meatballs—these are just a few of the recipes you can find in Marcie Cohen Ferris’ seminal work on Southern Jewish foodways, Matzoh Ball Gumbo: Culinary Tales of the Jewish South. Join Engagement and Collaboration Coordinator Margaret Norman and Dr. Cohen Ferris for a delicious conversation on Southern Jewish food and the stories and histories that food reveals.
In addition to Matzah Ball Gumbo, Dr. Cohen Ferris is author of The Edible South: The Power of Food and the Making of an American Region and co-editor of Jewish Roots in Southern Soil: A New History, as well as Professor Emeritus of American Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill.
