adventures in travelling to eat, with a dash of culinary history
NoshFest: Toronto’s Jewish Food Festival | PHOTO ESSAY
Growing up in Newfoundland there was a very small Jewish community, and my years in Halifax were spent eating at a pseudo-Jewish deli serving mediocre matzoh ball soup. Needless to say, I don’t know much about Jewish culinary culture. So, when I was invited to attend the first NoshFest, Toronto’s Jewish Food Festival, I jumped at the chance! I wrote a piece published today on the Daily Hive on learning about all the Jewish fare at the inaugural event yesterday.
As someone who spent most of last Tuesday making chicken soup, I felt the need to connect with my inner bubbie and demolish some Jewish fare.
My blood is pretty much brine after attending this event, with all the cured and pickled things, but I’m so happy I went! If you want to learn about Jewish food read the article here, if you just want to drool at some photos, see below.
Here’s the best of what I ate at NoshFest, a.k.a the Toronto Jewish Food Guide
