Street Fair Offers New Yorkers a Taste of Jewish Culture

Some New Yorkers spent Father's Day noshing through a variety of foods at The Workmen's Circle's Taste of Jewish Culture Street Fair in Midtown.

The event, now in its second year, featured 20 of the city's bestselling Jewish food vendors, who specialize in falafels, bagels and pickles.

There were also cookbook signings, musical performances, and an egg cream competition.

This year's winner gave us his recipe.

"The quintessential egg cream, you know the tradition is, you take Fox's U-Bet Chocolate Syrup, you take whole milk and ice cold seltzer, but the important piece is  our company is the old fashioned siphon seltzer, we fill it at our bottling plant, which is the last bottling plant in all of New York in Canarsie in Brooklyn and they're in old fashioned siphon seltzer bottles,” said Alex Gomberg of Brooklyn Seltzer Boys.

More than 5,000 people attended last year. This year, organizers estimated even more people attended.
