The relationship between Judaism and food is a strong one. Whether you’re kosher or just interested in learning about the variety and history of Jewish food, the London Jewish Food Festival – on May 22 in Golders Green – offers tastings, demos and talks which should prove fascinating. Independent stalls, meanwhile, offer some of London’s tastiest falafels, bagels, shwarmas and chicken soup. Book in advance for discounted tickets.
Gefiltefest is at Ivy House, 94-96 North End Rd, NW11 7SX (020 8457 5000). To book, see ljcc.org.uk.
