The Real Housewives of Henry Street, 1905

The Henry Street Settlement House at 265 Henry Street and Montgomery Street in the Lower East Side, New York, is hosting a number of interesting food events tomorrow, September 25 from 3-5 pm.  97 Orchard author Jane Ziegelman will be discussing the food traditions of the women of the Lower East Side tenements.  Sarah Lohman, the historic gastronomist, will  talk about how she recreated a Kosher meal from the period.  And Suzanne Wasserman, Director of the Gotham Center for New York City History and publisher of my article on oysters in New York on the Gotham Blotter, will show a clip from the film Meat Hooked! about the 1902 Lower East Side Kosher butcher boycott.  There will also be a strudel-making demonstration, which sounds really fun.  The event is $19.05.
