|Breads of the World: Israel (in the Idea Studio)|
Event Type: Library Event|
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 7:30 PM
Breads of the World will travel to Israel when Dusty Krikau will demonstrate how to make the rich braided yeast bread challah. Challah, sweet and moist, is distinguished by its luscious aroma and golden color. Krikau will walk through each step of the process and will share her recipe. The class is free, but space is limited. Online-only registration starts at 9:30 am Tue Mar 7 here at the Calendar.
Challah is an ancient Jewish ceremonial bread, eaten on Sabbath and Jewish holidays. It’s custom to begin the Friday night meal and the two meals eaten during Sabbath with a blessing over two loaves.
Krikau is director of communication and special events at the Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership, where she, among other things, coordinates Fondue Fest and the downtown Farmers Market.
“It is amazing how much you can learn about a culture through food,” Krikau said. “I wasn’t raised in a Jewish household, so learning to make challah was symbolic of my process of making Judaism part of my adult home. You quickly become proficient when you make two loaves every week!”
Breads of the World is a monthly demonstration series on the third Tuesday of the month in the Idea Studio taught by professional and amateur cooks from around the area. Coming up on April 18: Tortillas from Mexico, taught by Pedro Arellano. Anyone interested in teaching a favorite ethnic bread should contact Terri Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org or (920) 322-3951.
