Gefiltefest 2017

Celebrating Jewish food on Sunday 25th June 2017 at JW3

Prepare your taste-buds for this year’s fantastic Festival. We’re planning a tantalising experience of Jewish cuisine from all over the world.

This is just a hint of what’s to come.

Food for thought

  • Inspiring London with the taste of Tel-Aviv, Chef Eran Tibi shares his love of food with Victoria Prever of the JC
  • Richard Verber reveals all in ‘The Secret History of Jews & Vodka’
  • For all the latest in food trends, Edward Bergen, Mintel explains how Middle Eastern cuisine has taken the UK by storm
  • Jayne Cohen, author of Jewish Holiday Cooking: A food lover’s treasury of classics and improvisations, tells us how African-American Southern food influenced local Jewish cuisine

Real healthy eating

  • As the first UK Jewish farm and environmental community of our generation, The Sadeh explains how we can pursue a healthier and more sustainable world

Nothing fishy here

  • Naomi Joseph on Herring! A Pickled Story
  • Lance Forman, H. Forman & Son flies the flag for the famous London cure for smoked salmon

Inside the kitchen

  • Judi Rose & Jackie Lewis, Lokshen Horror – the session everyone’s talking about
  • Hanna Goldsmith of Building Feasts blog, making meals fun, inclusive, beautiful, inviting and achievable
  • Emma Spitzer, Masterchef finalist, JW3 celeb and author of Fress: Bold flavours from a Jewish kitchen
  • Chef and cookery writer Denise Phillips on salt alternatives in pretzels, salted caramel blueberry pots and salted seeded chocolate bark
  • Daisy Abboudi, author of Tales of Jewish Sudan, puts her Sudanese twist on baklava

And a children’s programme not to be missed!

From 11am – 4pm, there’s variety of hands-on activities for your kids to get stuck into! We will have herb planting, spice tasting and smelling, crafts making and quizzes to keep your kids engaged and occupied during the Festival. After a very successful collaboration with Mitzvah Day last year making apple crumble and brownies, Gefiltefest is delighted to be partnering with them again. Children aged 6 and over will have a special opportunity to help make food and write notes to refugees, which will be distributed to them after the Festival.

So while we’re cooking, you can get booking!

Early Bird Bookings are available until Thursday 25th May 2017

Please note: the event programme is subject to change.
