Challah: A Shabbat Dinner


Masa Madre


'Challah' is a dinner series exploring the diverse communities of the Jewish cultural diaspora through the eye eaters lens— a dynamic meal, good conversation and a touch of ritual.

This series will center around Shabbat, the weekly Jewish day of rest, contemplation and togetherness. 




Challah kicks off on Friday, November 19 at 7pm in our Ravenswood studio with Masa Madre and will explore chefs Tamar and Elena's Mexican-Jewish heritage through flavors reminiscent of their youth in Mexico City and grandmothers’ kitchens.



Tamar and Elena are passionate bakers (and longtime friends) from Mexico City. Together they created Masa Madre, an artisanal bakery blending their Mexican and Jewish heritage through flavors that are reminiscent of their youth and our grandmothers’ kitchens.

As recent immigrants, they arrived with high hopes of finding a community to welcome and guide them, however, they later realized it was them who had to build that community, and bread was the key.
