Here’s your chance to take part in a food discussion group as part of the Museum Foodies Group. Hosted by the Manchester Jewish Museum, the Foodies Group meet regularly to talk, cook and eat food inspired by stories from the museum’s collection. Lasting for an hour, the session will take place over Zoom so you can enjoy chatting to people from the safety of your own home.
This month they’ll be talking about rice – covering everything rice-related included Jewish Sephardi dishes, risotto, pilau and sticky rice. See it as a place to catch up with old friends, make new ones, all while learning how to make some fantastic new dishes and sharing some of your own creations. You can also expect to hear stories from the Jewish Museum’s collection to do with… rice, of course!

This week’s session will feature theatre chef Leo Burtin and producer Laura Seddon, who will give you an appetiser for the museum’s ongoing Eat the Archives project and a preview of their February trailblazer. You’ll discover how members will be turning stories into dishes and the different ways you can take part in the development of the museum’s theatrical dining experience. Even if you’re not a rice fan, there’s plenty to learn and enjoy in these welcoming sessions.
Eat the Archives is part of the Trailblazers Season being held in the lead up to the long-awaited launch of the new iteration of the museum later in 2021. If you enjoy stories as a side order to your dinner, this is the group for you. Everyone is welcome and no cooking experience is needed to take part. To join in, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be given the relevant details.
