Foodie Group Workshop



Learning Studio



*This workshop is now fully booked. Please e-mail if you’d like to join the waiting list*

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.

This month we are excited to have our very own foodie group member Sandra co-host this ‘Pão de Queijo’ Brazilian / Portuguese style’ group. ‘Pão de Queijo’ or ‘Brazilian Cheese bread’ is a small baked cheese bun, a popular snack and breakfast food in Brazil.

Join us for November’s Foodie Group which will see Sandra teaching us about and making some delicious Portuguese/Bazilian treats that she has grown up eating.

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

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.
