Eat The Archive at Manchester Jewish Museum at Manchester Jewish Museum, Cheetham Hill 1 — 30 September 2020 Entrance is free — Book now

Manchester Jewish Museum is calling out to Manchester based food lovers. They are looking for foodie advocates to work with food artist Leo Burtin and help spread jewish stories and culture through an edible medium. What we eat, where we eat, how we eat and who we eat with, is such a large part of our culture, which may have been disrupted during the lockdown period. Eat the Archive plans to bring that connection between food, culture and community to light.

Through a taste transformation, foodie advocates will learn the history of Manchester’s Jewish community through talking, eating and making. This hands on approach to heritage gives advocates the tools to take their new found knowledge into their own communities.

Whether you’ve become a passionate ‘lockdown chef’ or the idea of a kitchen puts you on edge, all are welcome to get involved regardless of foodie background. The project starts in September, email if you are interested in taking part in Eat the Archive.
