World Kugel Day Festival

WHAT: A celebration of Kugel! The first annual World Kugel Day Festival will include a Kugel Cook Off and Tasting, music by Rocky Mountain Jewgrass, a community art project and noodle art for kids. You’ll walk away with new kugel recipes for your High Holiday feasts, and an inexplicable sense of calm brought on by this tasty traditional treat.

WHEN: Sunday, August 19, 2-5pm

WHY: Jews have been seeking comfort for thousands of years. Many stopped seeking when they found kugel. It’s a taste of childhood, whether enjoyed as a weekly Sabbath treat or an annual holiday side dish. Some mystics ascribe kugel special powers, while many fine chefs and Jewish mothers consider kugel creation an art. So, for many reasons, this homey casserole is well worth celebrating!
