This year's lineup strikes a balance of arts and intellect, ideas and imagination, history and humor, and also will include spirited discussions about cyber wars, politics, the economy and the military. For those seeking a quiet escape from the daily grind, Read-juvination will be a special day focusing on mind, balance and body. A complete list of authors and events can be found at www.sdjbf.org. Book Fair events will run from October 29 through November 6, and are presented by the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center.. General Information: For tickets visit www.sdjbf.org or call the JCC Box Office at 858-362-1348. On November 6 at the Leichtag Commons in Encinitas, The San Diego Jewish Book Fair presents FOODIES AT THE FARM. This multi-chef morning is a foodie's dream come true. Join us for one or all three of these creative and culinary stars as they entertain, demonstrate and delight us with old-world Jewish classics and new-age methods. Address: Leichtag Commons - 441 Saxony Road, Encinitas, CA 92024 Sunday, November 6 10:00 am Cooking demo with Stanley Ginsberg The Rye Baker: Classic Breads from Europe and America That football-shaped, caraway-seed-studded loaf at your local supermarket? That's not rye bread. True rye bread-in the northern/eastern European tradition-is, according to author and baker Stanley Ginsburg, a world of 'flavors, textures, and baking challenges I never imaged existed.' Join us for a tasting, and discussion of The Rye Baker, which takes us on a world tour of marvelous ryes: from orange-infused Swedish Gotland Rye to near-black Westphalian Pumpernickel to Spiced Honey Rye from France's Auvergne to Old Milwaukee Rye. Sunday, November 6 11:00 am Cooking demo with Molly Yeh Molly on the Range: Recipes and Stories from an Unlikely Life on a Farm Forget everything The Office's Dwight Schrute may have shown you about life on a beet farm. In Life on the Range, classically trained musician/food blogger/former Brooklynite Molly Yeh tells you about her move from the Big Apple to the beet farm in a crackling, winsome style, all while sharing distinct recipes drawing from her Jewish/Chinese background, her childhood in Chicago, her years in New York, and the Scandinavian tastes of her new hometown near the North Dakota-Minnesota border. Meet the author for a tasting and talk. Sunday, November 6 12:00 pm Lunch with Jeffrey Yoskowitz and Liz Alpern The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods We're delighted to welcome the co-founders of The Gefilteria-a Brooklyn restaurant that takes the often mocked and maligned Ashkenazi dish to new heights-for a tasting and talk centered on their new cookbook, The Gefilte Manifesto. The writing/cooking/pickling/entrepreneurial duo melds old-school ingredients with new-school techniques in more than 100 Ashkenazi-inspired recipes that both honor traditional Jewish tastes and while embracing contemporary culinary trends (yes, farm-to-table gefilte is a possibility). Sunday, November 6 2:00 pm A 'live planting project' with Jeff Gottesfeld The Tree in the Courtyard: Looking Through Anne Frank's Window Bring the children for a reading and event they won't soon forget (as attendees will take part in a live planting project). Outside Anne Frank's window was a 'bare chestnut tree glistening with dew,' as she described it in her diary. In this magically illustrated book-a '...noteworthy and highly recommended introduction to a difficult and significant topic' (School Library Journal)-we learn about Anne from this tree's point of view: it's there when she arrives, when she peeks from the windows, and when her family is taken away.
