30.06.2023 - 17:00 - 21:00 / Institute of Art and Design, Pedagogical University, ul. Podbrzezie 3

Let me take the workshop participants on a trip to the eastern part of the Mediterranean. We will visit vegetable markets, say what spices go well with what, talk a bit about the tradition of Jewish cooking in this part of the world, and each day of the workshop promises to be an adventure with a completely different smell and taste.


Watermelon salad with feta which sometimes also comes with halloumi. It is the essence of hot summer on a plate. It crunches where it should and seduces with the saltiness of the cheese elsewhere.

Burek with cheese – thin dough which very much resembles strudel with salty cheese and herb stuffing can make even the biggest sceptics happy, and we will make the dough from scratch – no half measures here.

Chraime – if the whole family say that they don’t like fish, then I have a solution for you. Chramie – fish in a spicy sauce from Morocco that is popular with everyone, even those who don’t eat fish.

Muhallabia – smooth cream made of milk is a classic dessert of the Eastern Mediterranean. You can serve it with nuts, with crumble or with pomegranate molasses, or with everything!
