Hulu-Ageresh (Rivka) Bercoli’s father was Chew Ekpepei – responsible for distributing all the food and spices to remote villages in Ethiopia. The people of the villages kept spice mixtures away from the plants, which they believed strengthened the body and mind.

Bercoli immigrated to Israel when she was 7 years old and quickly warmed to the available Western food. Growing up, she suffered from health issues and later decided to make a return to the Ethiopian food of her childhood. When she discovered its benefits, she began to research, to preserve the cooking traditions of the women of her community and to assume her father’s role in making the knowledge and raw materials of Ethiopian cuisine accessible.

Hulu-Ageresh (Rivka) Bercoli will hold a special meeting at the Attilio School, where she will reveal a side of Ethiopian cuisine that few in Israel know: about spices and their virtues and about special cooking techniques and traditions of the community. The meeting with culminate in a traditional Shabbat meal, cooked by Bercoli, at noon.
