Summer Bake Off at Manchester Jewish Museum at Manchester Jewish Museum, Cheetham Hill, 28 July–25 August 2021, from £4 - Book now

Manchester Jewish Museum has reopened its doors to the public and we are loving the new building. In addition to the original 1874 synagogue the redevelopment work that took place over the past couple of years has brought with it a new gallery, cafe and shop as well as a highly anticipated learning studio and kitchen. This summer, the Museum will be making use of its new learning studio to teach, bake and eat a range of traditional Jewish treats in their Summer Bake Off.

Food is somewhere we can all share a feeling of community.

Every Wednesday throughout August, you can join the museum to create traditional Breads and sweet treats including Challah Bread, Hamantaschen and Rugelach. Over the hour session you’ll learn the history behind the recipes and the techniques involved in each delicacy. You’ll then be able to take home and sample your creations.

Each session is designed to be accessible for ages 6 and over through to elderly adults, however, children must be supervised.

Food is culture, so you can be sure to learn something regardless of your baking experience. Whether it’s the heritage of a recipe or stories that come from the conversations with other the people you meet in the session. Food is somewhere we can all share a sense of community, making it an excellent catalyst for cultural exchanges.

Workshops are ticketed so as to allow for social distancing and a safe environment to learn in. However, admission to the Museum is included in the ticket price, so you can explore the galleries and collection as well as learning in the kitchen.
