The Chosen Food: Shavuot on Kibbutz: Reinventing a Harvest Festival
Sun, 4 June 2017, 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM PDT
The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC is pleased to present the fourth evening in our supper club series, The Chosen Food. Each event in this series will showcase a regional style of Jewish cuisine.
This evening, our guest host is local chef Lior Ben-Yehuda. Lior was born in Israel where she was raised on a kibbutz, and is now the head pastry chef at Coco et Olive.
Every spring, Jews around the world celebrate Shavuot, a holiday commemorating the wheat harvest and the giving of the Torah by God to the Jews at Mount Sinai. It is traditional on Shavuot to eat a feast of dairy foods, such as blintzes, kugel (sweet noodle pudding), and cheeses.
Join us in a Shavuot meal with a contemporary spin, where dairy is complemented by fresh fruits and vegetables celebrating the bounty of fresh food available in spring and early summer.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
- A full meal
- Stories about the history behind each dish
- Great conversation
- Recipes to try at home
- All food is kosher-style, but not certified kosher
