Join us for a chicken soup-making, heart-warming hour this Thursday in a special SJWF pop up event.


When days get colder, and more covid-y, what better way to lift your spirits and warm your soul than by cooking up a great chicken soup.

Join two amazing cooks and authors, Alice Zaslavsky and Lisa Goldberg, this Thursday July 8th at 11am, as they make and share their chicken soup recipes from their homes. They’ll also chat about the food that makes you feel better, how we pass family traditions and stories on when we cook as well as their wonderful new cookbooks. We want you to cook with us too! So clear your benchtop this Thursday from 11am and have your ingredients ready!


You can make friends with salad, and Alice Zaslavsky is here to prove it. ABIA award-winning author of In Praise of Veg, Culinary Correspondent for ABC News Breakfast and ABC Radio nationally, and creator of food literacy projects like Phenomenom, she wants every home cook to feel empowered to make something delicious and share it with the people they love. Also, you might find her hiding in your pantry in little jars ‘by Alice’. That’s just the kind of friend she is.



Cookbook author Lisa Goldberg heads up Sydney’s Monday Morning Cooking Club. Since 2011, the group has published four best-selling cookbooks which document and preserve recipes from Jewish kitchens across Australia and the world, honouring and celebrating the most treasured family recipes, alongside moving stories of warmth, family, friendship, community and survival. Lisa embraces the saying ‘it’s always about the food’ – she is a self confessed fresser with an unbridled passion for eating, cooking and nurturing those around her with food.


WHEN: Thursday July 8th  at 11am, via ZOOM
