Summer is just around the corner, and so is picnic season! If you’re looking for a new and exciting snack to serve with your friends and family over a checkered blanket on a sunny afternoon, then we have just the thing!
Join us with MasterChef Canada winner Jennifer Crawford as we learn how to prepare a batch of delicious homemade pop tarts using only the freshest seasonal ingredients. Sweet or savoury, these handheld delights will be sure to please anyone who bites into them! Moderated by Lara Rabinovitch, Jennifer will share with us how they came to explore their creativity through cooking, and even how preparing dishes has become a way for Jennifer to connect with their Jewish heritage. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask Jennifer your questions following the demonstration. All attendees will receive a copy of Jennifer’s recipe, so you can impress your pals with these delectable pop tarts all year round!
This event is presented in proud partnership Keshet. We also thank the support of the Nussia and Andre Aisenstadt Foundation, the Jewish Community Foundation, and Federation CJA for making this event possible.
