Sukkot edition!
Foodie Group Workshop



Learning Studio



THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN FULLY BOOKED. Please e-mail if you’d like to join the waiting list and we’ll let you know if we have a space for you!

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’s Foodie Group will be based around the most recent Jewish festival of Sukkot. The most common Sukkot dishes are filled foods, particularly stuffed vegetables and pastries which symbolise the bounty of the harvest.

During our October meeting we will be exploring some traditional and delicious harvest related Sukkot dishes.

No experience necessary – perfect for cooking 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.
