Watch out for the JC’s #Passover­hacks on our web­site. They are video recipes of four of my favourite speedy matzah-based snacks. They’ll have you wish­ing it was Passover al­ready. The first (on­line now) turns matzah into na­chos (be­low) with home-made gua­camole. You’ll won­der why you never thought of it be­fore.

If your tastes run to sweeter things, look up Weiss Patis­serie (www.weiss­patis­serie.com). Based in Mill Hill, NW7, it’s a brand-new bak­ery un­touched by chometz. Owner/baker, Yonatan Weiss has taken the op­por­tu­nity to bake only for Pe­sach. “I’ve cre­ated a range of cakes that look like all-year round patis­serie but is all kosher for Pe­sach and parev” he ex­plains. Su­per­vised by KLBD and Kedas­sia it could change your Pe­sach menu. He has no shopfront so check them out and or­der on­line and via the tele­phone on 0208 346 2263.

Save the date for Ge­filte­fest, which has re­cently turned over its ‘open for busi­ness’ sign — with tick­ets on sale on the JW3 web­site. New fes­ti­val direc­tor, Emma Wolfin Gold­ing (right) has taken up the reins this year. She has a back­ground in event man­age­ment and a pas­sion for food. Seven years liv­ing in Is­rael saw her fall in love with Is­raeli food “es­pe­cially aubergines”.

“Food for me has al­ways been about shar­ing sto­ries and con­nect­ing with people. That’s what I’m aim­ing to cre­ate at this year’s Ge­filte­fest.” On the agenda are fresh new cook­ery demos, gety­our-hands-dirty work­shops and food sto­ries from all over the world. (www.jw3.org.uk)

On Mon­day, I feasted my way around IFE 2017 — the UK’s biggest food trade show. A high­light was Seph and Joe’s gourmet pop­corn. My favourite was their Mar­mite — salty, sweet and mor­eish. They have a date and wal­nut per­fect for Sephardi

Passover.
