Time to make the donuts! Sufganiyot are fried, jelly-filled, sugar-dusted donuts that pop up during Hannukah. An Israeli folktale descibes God consoling Adam and Eve with jelly donuts after their expulsion from the Garden of Eden, and while the biblical legitimacy of that tale is tenuous at best, it is fitting that a fried treat is enjoyed during a holiday that centers around the burning of oil, right? Whether you’re looking to make your own sufganiyot this holiday season or you’re simply a fried dough fan (who isn’t?), join Tova Du Plessis for a scratch sufganiyot demonstration of three fillings – rum custard, jam and espresso ricotta. Located on East Passyunk Avenue, Tova’s Essen Bakery specializes in artisanal Jewish baked goods. After years of working at prestigious restaurants (Le Bec Fin, Avance and Lacroix to name a few), Chef Tova du Plessis decided to go back to her roots when she opened her first bakery. She took inspiration from the fresh-baked bread and pastries she would make alongside her mother as a child. Pick up some sufganiyah tips that would make your bubbe proud!
