Women of UH: Knish Making Workshop

September 27, 2016, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Spielberg Chapel

All UH women and their friends are invited to join us for an fun-filled evening of knish making.  Do you remember your grandmother’s knish recipe and want to learn how to make them?

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Women of UH event without coffee, wine and other treats as well.

What is a knish?

A knish is an Eastern European snack food consisting of a filling covered with dough that is either baked, grilled, or deep fried. It was made popular in North America by Eastern European immigrants from the Pale of Settlement (mainly from present-day Belarus, Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine). In most Eastern European traditional versions, the filling is made entirely of mashed potato, ground meat, sauerkraut, onions, kasha (buckwheat groats), or cheese. Other varieties of fillings include sweet potatoes, black beans, fruit, broccoli, tofu, or spinach. Knishes may be round, rectangular, or square. They may be entirely covered in dough or some of the filling may peek out of the top. Sizes range from those that can be eaten in a single bite hors d’oeuvre to sandwich-sized.
