Jewish feast
L’Chayim Jewish Food Festival returns to Manchester

 Brisket, pastrami and corned beef deli meat, along with stuffed cabbage, sweet noodle kugel and other pastries are all on the menu at the L’Chayim Jewish Food Festival in Manchester.

The fourth annual event, named after the Hebrew transliteration meaning “celebration,” is happening on Sunday, Oct. 15, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Temple Adath Yeshurun.
“All of our volunteers who make the food have been doing it forever and even had grandparents who used to,” said Cate Tanzer, president of Temple Adath Yeshurun and co-chair of the festival. “We thought it was a nice way to open the temple up to the greater Manchester area to come in and see what we’re all about.”
This is the first time the temple has partnered with Evan’s New York Style Deli in Marblehead, Mass., where the pastramis, corned beef and tongues will come from.
“They are going to be selling it to us and we’ll be slicing it ourselves with two deli slicers and selling it by the pound,” Tanzer said. “You can also get any of those meats as a sandwich.”
Other options include slow cooked brisket, rye breads, matzo ball soup, and stuffed cabbage leaves with rice, onion and ground beef, and tzimmes.
“Tzimmes is a carrot and sweet potato butter sauce made with brown sugar and salt added in so that it’s not too sweet,” Tanzer said.
There’s also challah, a Jewish bread, and noodle kugel, a warm baked dish prepared with fluffy egg noodles that are mixed with cheeses and sour cream and topped with butter, brown sugar and almonds. It can be eaten as a side dish or a dessert, according to Tanzer.
For other desserts, enjoy the rugelach, a crescent-shaped pastry made with a variety of sweet fillings, or the mandelbrot baked almond cookies. A glazed apple strudel will also be served, as well as cinnamon and chocolate babka.
“The babka is a cake that has a spread shaped into a figure 8 of cinnamon, brown sugar and walnuts inside, and there’s a chocolate one too,” Tanzer said.
Tanzer said this year’s festival is being held later in the day than in previous years to coincide with the end of the New England Patriots game as well as a performance of My Fair Lady by the Manchester Community Theater Players, which are both expected to wrap up just as the serving of the food will get underway.
“We also decided to cross-advertise with [the theater], so if you’re going to the show and you come down to the festival afterward and bring your ticket stub, you can get a dollar off of whatever food item you want,” she said.
She recommends getting there as early as you can, as some foods have been known to sell out before the end of the event in the past.
“We have made much more this year, but I would definitely say it’s better if you get there early to get what you want,” she said.
