SUNDAY, AUGUST 19 – 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! The first annual World Kugel Day Festival will include a Kugel Cook Off and Tasting,
