Monica and Eva both come from very different backgrounds and corners of the globe and their Jewish journey has intertwined through food. Their vision is to bring food, histories and heritage, different chronicles, to the table.
Monica, from Mexico City, was raised in a Syrian Jewish family and intertwines her family tradition with a Mexican style. Eva, from Melbourne Australia, has Ashkenazi Polish heritage and Irish roots and is searching for the memory behind the food. Between the two of them, they are exploring gastronomic traditions, stories and meanwhile asking the question: what is Jewish food?
For more information about Monica & Eva’s Jewish food projects, check out the Toldot Barcelona website.
The location is the beautiful and newly restored former synagogue building of the Uilenburgersjoel. Built in 1766 it is one of the few original buildings that remain in the former Jewish Quarter in Amsterdam. It is home to Oy vey Amsterdam.
