romeBy Pagine Ebraiche Staff

A six-episode show devoted to the cucina giudaico-romanesca (Jewish-Roman cuisine) is going to air on Italian TV culinary channel Gambero Rosso starting next month. Introducing the dishes to the public will be chef Laura Ravaioli.

Announcing the show to Pagine Ebraiche was a member of the Jewish Community board Giorgia Calò, who has been serving as councilor for culture for five months. Calò emphasized how the project represents a symbol of how the Jewish community should engage with the general public.

“Cooperation must be the key word of our work. We can cooperate with universities, theaters, museums, individual institutions,” Calò said. “Being open to an exchange, explaining who we are to the world represents both a need and a challenge. The initiative by Gambero Rosso Channel goes exactly in this direction.”
