Do you know the delicacies of Jewish cuisine? Have you heard of Jewish New Year dish? Have you ever made Challah or Rugelach?Are you interested in Jewish culture and customs? As you probably know Jewish cuisine is still determined by a large number of religious regulations, which makes this world even more fabulous for us. My relationship with Jewish people and culture started more than 17 years ago when I got to know my husband. I met him and became part of a modern Jewish family. The main figure of the family is the grandmother whose love for life, attitude and modern way of thinking is an example for me to follow. It was her who taught me the following dishes and I am really grateful to her for introducing me the secrets of Jewish cuisine. Come, cook Jewish dishes and join a multi-religious group. Learn about the history of Central European Jews as well as about the bustling Jewish life in Budapest.
