    Where: Arrillaga Family Pavilion (Bldg C) 1st Floor

    The event is SOLD OUT. No tickets at the door. 

    OFJCC Palo Alto JCCJoin us for our very first pop-up Shabbat dinner. Shabbat will be led by Tova Birnbaum before we all dine together.

    Kosher Style Menu:

    Vegetarian Borscht
    Ukrainian Garlic Buns (Pampushki)
    Sweet Crepes with Homemade Cottage Cheese (Nalisniki)

    About the Menu:
    Borscht is a dish that could be easily called a Ukrainian national treasure. This intensely red, flavorful soup is a frequent guest at every Ukrainian table. The recipe changes from family to family, but the essential ingredients are always the same: lots of cabbage, tomatoes, beans and of course tons of beets! The deeply satisfying flavor of borscht will make you fall in love with it from the first slurp.

    OFJCC Palo Alto JCCAbout the Chef:
    Anna Voloshyna will be serving borscht piping hot with a dollop of sour cream and freshly baked garlic buns. As a second course, Anna will be serving traditional Ukrainian Blinies (Nalisniki) filled with homemade cottage cheese and raisins. You can also expect a surprise little sweet treat at the end of the meal. It's a wonderfully comforting meal from Anna's childhood which she's eager to share with you.

    Anna was born and raised in Ukraine, and after moving to the United States, followed her passion for cooking and started hosting East European pop-up dinners with a focus on Ukrainian and Georgian cuisines. She is passionate about telling culinary stories of different cultures and connecting people through the simple joy of having a meal together. New tastes, unexpected culinary discoveries and the deliciousness of living in the moment—that’s what Anna wants guests to experience at her cooking classes.
