Manchester Jewish Museum

Chanukah Party Edition!
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 and backgrounds. Our workshops are informal, chatty and a chance to meet new people as well as learn about new recipes and cooking traditions.

We invite all our regular foodies and those newbies too, to book on for our end of year celebration Foodie Group – Chanukah party edition, which will see our regular member Len co-host a Chanukah extravaganza. We can promise calories and tasty ones too, yum!

Chanukah, the 8 day festival which occurs each December, sees Jewish people cook and eat delicious baked/fried foods from Donuts to Latkes…

So join us this month to make and eat some tasty traditional Chanukah treats!

No experience necessary – perfect for beginners and seasoned pros. You even get to take home what you make!

This activity is designed for adults of all ages.

We are always looking for our 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 Demi at

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 in advance.
