Tanya Truman’s Favourite Nigella Recipes
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.

This month we invite you to join us for a very special Foodie Group workshop, co-hosted by actor, singer and creative producer, Tanya Truman.

Tanya will join us ahead of her performance in ‘Becoming Nigella’, a new musical-in-concert shown as part of our Synagogue Nights Season this November. She will be sharing her favourite Nigella recipes with us – including a delicious pavlova, a pea, mint and avocado salad and a musical mayonnaise.

Join us for this delicious session and grab a free ticket to the show!


This activity is designed for adults of all ages.

Participants who attend this Foodie Group workshop will receive a free ticket to ‘Becoming Nigella’.

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
