Description
 
Located on East Passyunk Avenue, 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. Her food certainly reflects her Jewish heritage, but for Tova’s December appearance at class, she’s reaching back to her South African roots. Tova’s South African lunch includes biltong salad; "bunny chow” (Durban lamb curry in a loaf of bread); and for dessert, melk tert (milk tart). Plus, Tova’s husband Brad du Plessis of Winebow will be pouring South African wine selections to accompany the afternoon’s dishes.
