Nosh-On Series 2019-20

We have had so many wonderful hosts and exciting sessions since we started the Nosh On series in the Fall of 2017. We have learned to make pita bread, falafel, hummus, and tabbouleh with the Majerowskis; cabbage rolls, chocolate toffee matzoh, and two types of kugel with the Coveys; challah with Student Rabbi Sarah Rosenbaum at the Letven’s; burekitas (an Israeli street food) with Keren Weisshaus the Milwaukee Federation's shlicha (Israeli emissary) at the temple; latkes and applesauce with Karen and Debra Solomon at the temple for Hanukkah; and gefilte fish at the Goldstein’s prior to Passover. Since we have had great success with this series, we are glad to offer it again for this calendar year.

The 2019-20 Nosh On Series will begin in September and run through May. We plan to have one event a month and are looking for volunteers to teach a recipe (either in their own home, at the temple, or space is also available within homes already volunteered by temple members).

What would I have to do as a host? The host would email Kendra Heffelman with their idea, date/time, and kitchen limit. Typically, we have met on Sunday afternoon 12 to 1 p.m. as a start time, we bring items requested by the host for us to use while we all cut, mix, and make our way through each recipe. Plus, everyone donates a small bit to cover the hosts costs and time. As you can see in the list of previous events (above), some hosts have selected several recipes and we’ve had a meal at the end of our evening, others have taught one recipe. Either way, we have something to nosh on at the end of our evening and recipes to take home. Ideal recipes are those centered around Jewish foods (holidays, family recipes, street foods, etc.) but all are welcome. Be as creative as you'd like!

Want to volunteer but don't know what to make? Here are some suggestions but any recipe will do!

Breads/Baked Goods: Babka, Rugelach, Hamantaschen, Sufganiyot, Apple Cake, Bagels

Family favorites: Blintzes, Chicken Soup/Matzoh balls, Kreplach, Cholent, Knishes, Shakshuka, Shawarma, Babaganoush, Salads of all kinds

To volunteer, call or email Kendra Heffelman. Please indicate whether you are interested in offering your house/need a space, recipe(s) you plan to teach, what items the guests should bring, the date, and time.

Keep calm and Nosh On!
