WJWE has been on the road! A little recap of our Passover events for the St. Louis and Kansas City Federations. Y’all it’s been a busy April! I’ve been all over. (Or at least all over Texas and the midwest.) From a hamantaschen class for BBYO in San Antonio (thanks for the Snapchat tutorial, y’all) to a PJ Library Hamantaschen class and Israeli Cooking Demo here in Austin, it’s been busy. But super fun.
(P.S. If you want me to come to your city, email me at amy at whatjewwannaeat dot com and we can talk about details! Yay!)
How gorgeous is The Venue (that’s actually what it’s called) in Leawood?
We had a sold out event in KC of 120 women! I told stories, shared some Passover recipe tips, and answered questions about Jew food and blogging and life. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did! These lovely ladies planned the whole thing! Just some of the spread!
Manischewitz Sangria for everyone!
Some were skeptical, but by the end, there was no sangria left. Mmm hmm.
I loved that so many mothers, daughters and grandmothers came together! Wish my Mom and Bubbe could have been there too!
P.S. These adorable aprons are from my Etsy Store.
I demoed Rainbow Macaroons from my cookbook, Vegetarian Chopped Liver, Israeli Quinoa Salad plus there were bites of Apple Beet Charoset,Vegetable Kugel with Caramelized Leeks, Matzah Puppy Chow and more!
It was especially fun meeting everyone there! Lots of invisible internet friends and new friends. Everyone was just so darn nice! I hope I can come back. xox
The next day I catered a brunch for 15 and did one more demo before Shabbat time! Whew. First, I chatted with the RaBBi-Q himself (get it, like BBQ Rabbi? Don’t you love that?) Mendel and got to try some of his tasty kosher BBQ sauces.
And then had Shabbat dinner with the hysterical Yosef and Daniella. They made way too much super delicious food, and had enough wine for a approximately four times as many people as were at dinner. It was delightful.
Next up The Lou! (Do people still say that?) I was in beast chef mode all day, as we cooked for not one but three events. Luckily, I had lots of help- thanks y’all!
So. Much. Kugel.
This salmon will be on the blog soon! With horseradish sour cream and almond gremolata. Making things happen.
So. Many. Samples.
It was so fun meeting everyone! How is everyone from the Midwest just so darn nice? And, how’s this for Jewish geography, my long lost friend from Jew camp in Massachusetts, Shira, was there! I hadn’t seen her in 15 years!
Mo sangria, less problems.
Thanks to everyone who came to any of the events! Jew are my favorite.
P.S. How much do you love my new WJWE temporary tattoos!!?? I’m definitely bringing some of these to my next event.
