Here are three not-to-miss Passover foodie events: a Slow Food Seder with Heeb Magazine, Seders in the Streets with the Shalom Center, and a matzah-making workshop at Bobolink Dairy.
Slow Food Seder. On the second night of Passover (April 20), locally-focused chefs Gayle Pirie and John Cook will prepare a special Slow Food Seder just for Heeb Magazine readers. The seder (held in San Francisco) will play upon traditional Passover dishes, and will be “kosher by slow food standards.”
Tickets are $75. Proceeds benefit the Chez Panisse Foundation and include a 4-issue subscription to Heeb. Reserve a spot soon as seating is limited.

Street Seders. The Shalom Center is calling on YOU to speak out against environmental degradation this Passover: “This year, Passover converges with Earth Day. And it does so at a time when the global climate crisis can no longer be ignored, calling for us to take bold action. Taking inspiration from “street theater,” we propose holding “street seders” during Passover to oppose the pharaohs in our own day. Find out more and plan your own seder, here.
Matzah-Making. On Sunday, April 13, Bobolink Dairy in New Jersey is hosting their annual matzah-making workshop. Kids and adults can make matzah the old-fashioned way with organically-grown winter wheat berries and rye. To make your own matzah that looks like it was “baked on a flat rock in the Sinai,” register here (it’s only $5!). And bring the whole mishpacha! Bobolink promises to make a special fuss for parties that include three or more generations.
