If you've ever seen caterers pass flawless hors d'oeuvres and marveled at how they did it or wondered whether you could throw the perfect party—professionally or in your own home—come discover the inner workings of a professional kitchen. Diane Gordon '82, owner of Diane Gordon Catering, will walk participants through the preparation of a simple yet impressive meal using tools everyone has at home. She will also share her journey from the practice of law to successful entrepreneurship. Attendees may enjoy the meal with a glass of wine, and everyone will receive a folder of the recipes to keep.
 
The 2-hour class and tasting will take place in an industrial kitchen in East Harlem. Participants will need to stand around a prep table for the duration. Please email events@smithclubnyc.org if you require seating. Space is limited.

The Jewish Museum will present the first-ever exhibition exploring the remarkable career of the influential American art dealer, Edith Halpert (1900-1970). Halpert was a pioneer in the field and the first significant female gallerist in the US, presenting work by women, immigrants, and Jewish artists. She founded the Downtown Gallery, which was the first major mainstream art space in New York City to promote the work of African-American artists. Learn More.
