Eat the Archives: Appetiser is a chance for the people of Manchester to see what to expect from the newly revamped Manchester Jewish Museum. This online event is a culinary journey through the museum’s collection where they can join in from home and enjoy a wonderful meal, paired with fascinating stories from the archives.

This is an evening of food, community and stories – everything we have missed over the past turbulent year

Theatre Chef Leo Burtin will be your host for the evening, bringing stories to life through taste, each relating to the dish being served. Sign up early (by the 17th February) and you’ll receive a free spice kit in the post to help create your own dish at home, then the plan is to sit together, albeit online, and eat together to learn about the power of food as a way of rediscovering our past. Participants are encouraged to share their own stories, while everyone involved tastes the past, together.

As well as enjoying a wonderful, evocative meal, Leo’s storytelling will reveal the personal histories and lives behind each dish. This is an evening of food, community and stories – everything we have missed over the past turbulent year.

This event is geared towards food-lovers with a passion for more than just taste; for those looking to learn about the stories and memories behind the everyday things we take for granted.
