What is it all about?
Jewish cuisine is so much more than bagels (and we have a lot of respect for bagles!). It encompasses a rich variety of foods, all of which carry cultural significance and historical meaning, together with exotic flavours, intriguing stories and secret grandma recipes. Every Jewish gathering is centred around lots of food, and we are here to give you a taste of some of the main Jewish delicacies, and share with you the fascinating stories behind them.
What will we cover?
We’ll map out the different cuisines and cultural diversity that make up Jewish Cuisine, enjoy tastings of the most interesting & delicious Jewish treats, supply you with information on the best Jewish eateries in Melbourne and even share a few familial recipes.
