The MuseumCafe Hirsch

Jewish cooking incorporates a variety of cuisines from around the world.

Jewish religious laws prescribe how food is to be prepared. Meat from only certain animals, including beef, lamb and fowl, is permitted. Mixing milk and eat is strictly prohibited.

Jews over the millennia have adapted their foodways in response to local resources.   As a result there are considerable differences between the Jewish food-ways  enjoyed by Sephardim from the Mediterranean and the Middle East, and those of European ashkenazim from Eastern Europe.

The Museum Cafe offers traditional dishes from a variety of regional cuisines.
