Developed in 1968 by Montreal’s Mount Sinai Chapter of B’nai Brith Women, with Gilletz at the helm, the cookbook is a staple that can be found in just about every Canadian Jewish household in the country.

Second Helpings…Encore! will feature a chef-curated, eight-course tasting menu with wine pairings inspired by some of the original favourites from Second Helpings, Please! Throughout the evening, Gilletz will be in conversation with chefs as they prepare their dishes in an open kitchen ‘stadium.’

The event, Kashrut observed, will be the only major national fundraiser that B’nai Brith is hosting in 2018. For sponsorship opportunities, click here. (broken link 1)
