The event served as a promotional preview of a culinary venture called "The Hidden Matzo Chronicles," a creation of Olga Benis, a 37-year-old accountant who is one of this year's COJECO BluePrint Fellows, an award that enables Russian-speaking Jews to pursue a community project that explores "personal and collective identity." (The fellowship is funded by the UJA-Federation of NY and the Genesis Philanthropy Group.) Benis's project, which she hopes will ultimately become a commercial cookbook, weaves personal stories of oppression, Soviet culture, resilience, and salvation with recipesdishes that sensuously brings to life the experience of a Jew born and raised in Soviet Russia.
