Sunday, March 19, 12pm: Newish Jewish with Tova Du Plessis of Essen Bakery

Price $90.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

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 reflects her heritage while being heavily influenced by her classical training, We’re psyched that for her COOK debut, Tova is preparing not just dessert but a hearty lunch, which thankfully includes her now-famous babka – gefilte fish with fresh horseradish ‘chrain' and shaved carrot salad; perfect ribeye roast with apple and carrot tzimmes and potato kugel; and chocolate halva babka with coffee ice cream. Join us for a reimagined takes on Jewish staples – this ain’t your Jewish grandmother’s cooking we’re talking about!
