Quarantine Pesach Cake

An Oy Vey Pesach special
In collaboration with our dear colleague Eva McGowan from Toldot Barcelona!

recorded live on Monday April 6th, 2020, 4 pm CEST.

Who said keeping kosher for Pesach can’t be fun?! Join us to learn how to bake two Pesach cakes that are D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S and do not require any ingredients that may be hard to find during these strange times in quarantine. Together with Eva McGowan from Toldot Barcelona, we will bake a Sefardi walnut, almond, and orange cake, and a chocolate orange cake in this virtual bake-along. No previous experience in baking required.
