Shavuot Cheesecake making
Foodie Group Workshop



Learning Studio



UPDATE: Please note that this event has been postponed to Friday, June 10.

In June we will be meeting on Friday, after Shavuot, for a sweet themed session and cheesecake making!

During Shavuot we commemorate the spring harvest and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. One of the main Shavuot traditions is eating dairy products. We will be celebrating it by making delicious cheesecakes to be shared with our friends and families.

Our Foodie Group workshops are informal, chatty and a chance to meet new people as well as learn about new recipes and cooking traditions.
