Let's Cook Together

FOODS OF OUR ANCESTORS

"I wish I had watched my Mother and Grandmother make the old recipes I loved."

Did you ever wonder why they didn't write those recipes down?

Those recipes were stored in their souls, they mostly did not measure, but they just knew, and added some of this and that. We are going to make those old recipes in 4 sessions.

Food is a big part of our Jewish culture. As we pass down our traditions to our children, we also need to teach them how to make the foods that represent our heritage. 

1 Session in the TBE Kitchen ( approx 2 hrs each)           $15.00 per session  

Rugelach - Sunday, 9/15/2024, 9:30am - 11:30am

Borekas/pulled pastry Israel sandwich - Tuesday, 10/15/2024, 4pm - 6pm
