Not by bread alone

This year’s motif may be grains and baking, but the Mateh Yehuda Food Festival also offers cheese making, wine tasting, glassblowing and choice beef.

Now that we are having such mild spring weather, this is the best time to get outside on the weekends and enjoy ourselves at the 17th annual Mateh Yehuda Food Festival.

This year, the festival will take place May 12-31, with the concluding event winding up the festival on Shavuot. Due to the festival’s proximity to the Jewish harvest festival, this year’s organizers decided to choose grains as the festival’s motif. In other words, visitors can expect a wide assortment of delicious pastries and breads, as well as culinary workshops and baking lessons throughout the festival.
