How to make chocolate orange cookies with Genesis


Summers at Brandeis are anything but quiet. Genesis, a precollege program, brings high school students from around the world to campus to take experiential-learning classes that explore Jewish thought, culture and identity. One class, "Discovering the Art and Anthropology of Jewish Food," taught by Elizabeth Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz, encourages students to learn basic culinary skills while thinking critically about the role food has played in the formation of their Jewish identity. High school student Betsy made her grandmother’s recipe for chocolate-orange cookies in class. Listen to Betsy talk about the role this recipe plays in her family and learn how to make them.
