Manchester Jewish Museum

A Celebration of Pies!
Foodie Group Workshop



Learning Studio



Would you like to become a Museum Foodie?

Our Foodie Group meet monthly to discuss, cook and eat food inspired by stories from our collection, artists and events we programme, as well as our own members heritage’s and backgrounds. Our workshops are informal, chatty and a chance to meet new people, as well as learn about new recipes and cooking traditions.

This month’s Foodie Group we will be celebrating the limitless possibilities of pies! Inspired by our regular Foodie attendee Donovan’s love of cheese and onion pies, we will make a selection of fillings to enjoy!

We’ll also have a go at making some traditional Sephardic Jewish bourekas. So please join us for a vegetarian pie feast!


This activity is designed for anyone aged 18 or over.

Please note we use all vegetarian approved ingredients but the food is not ‘Beth Din’ supervised. If you have any allergies or would like more information on our Foodie Group please email Elly at

We are always looking for our group members to get involved or co-host our monthly sessions. If you’d be interested in sharing a family recipe, something you’ve grown up eating or cooking, or a dish/recipe that is close to your heart, that would be suitable to explore in this type of group setting, please email Elly at


Our new building includes step free access to the entrance via a ramp, a lift to the first floor, level access throughout the ground floor and accessible gender neutral toilets.
