Course Details



In this class, we will cook together as we chat about the what, when, and why this food is perfect for the chagim (holidays). Think Passover food is boring or tasteless? Guess what! There is an entire world of holiday food that many people have NOT even tried or discovered yet – or we think it’s too difficult to cook. Let's crumble those barriers, and try some exciting new recipes. This class is a time for kiddos to wear their favorite apron, roll up their sleeves, and join Chef Romi in the kitchen to cook together.

Class 1 – Passover specialties: Macaroons 2 ways, and matzo balls

Class 2 – Shabbat delicacies: Challah, couscous salad with olives, and roasted tomatoes

Class 3 – Israeli summer treats: Burekas & Watermelon and fried goat cheese salad

In this class we will be cooking- make sure your kitchen counters are clean and with plenty of space to place your camera and to be able to cook.
