The festival will feature an All You Can Nosh (Eat) format that is sure to entice the community’s collective taste buds with delicious Jewish food. This year’s event tastings will focus on traditional, Israeli, Jewish holidays and desserts.

Brisket, corned beef, matzah ball soup, latkes (potato pancakes), bagels, hummus, falafel, kugel and macaroons will be available for sampling by all attendees. Other types of Jewish foods will also be available. Jewish cooking combines the cooking styles of the many places that Jews have lived throughout the ages, especially eastern Europe, Germany, Spain and the Mediterranean. The constellation of these varied cuisines into one is uniquely Jewish.

The event will include the 6th annual Jewish baking contest, Bubbe’s Bake Off – “bubbe” is Yiddish for “grandmother” – with expert judges including food bloggers and recipe book authors. There will be a children’s division for younger bakers to participate in as well. This year’s event will also feature the “L’Chaim Wine Wall,” where for $18 attendees purchase a ticket and get to pick a mystery bottle of wine from the wall.

Individual tickets to the Jewish food festival cost $25, and family passes for up to two adults and their children 16 and under are $75. Kids three and under are free with a paid individual admission. For more information and to purchase tickets online, go to thetemplejacksonville.org.
