Everyone is invited to this community breakfast with local food writer for the Jewish Advocate, Joni Schockett on Sunday, December 15, 9:45 AM. She will speak about the history of bagels, cream cheese, and lox, and how they are not all Jewish in origin, yet together, they become an iconic Jewish delicacy. Joni grew up in Newton, attended Boston University and then earned a MEd in English from Framingham State University. Joni discovered her love of writing while working on the Daily Free Press at BU. She discovered her love of cooking much earlier when her dad made blueberry pancakes with blueberries she had picked in the backyard. She decided then that she wanted to do that too!
Joni continued to write, combining her developing passion for cooking and her long standing love of writing, in an organizational cookbook for Solomon Schechter Day School in 1989.
