Challah Demos in Bergenfield
Last Monday I had the honour of doing two challah demonstrations at the Grand & Essex Kosher food Market in Bergenfield. By the end of the evening I had handled / kneaded / manipulated 35 lbs of challah dough. So many challot were baked, several cinnamon bun cakes too – and so much fun was had! Hopefully all who attended learned how to braid challah in different ways and wowed their families with their challah braiding prowess this past Shabbat.
I must say that the staff at Grand & Essex were phenomenal. They could not have been more helpful or accommodating – and everyone seemed happy to be there. The store is lovely and clean, and the way they had the demo set up was so awesome. Everyone who attended was given a tote bag with yummies, and received copies of my recipes on handy dandy printed index cards.
I had a real blast, and I cannot wait to go back and do it all over again – if they’ll have me.
