The Jewish Food Experience (JFE) and Whole Foods Market (WFM) are thrilled to announce a first-ever Signature Demo Series collaboration featuring dishes from JFE’s curated list of Top Ten Passover recipes. Four of DC’s premiere chefs will demonstrate how to prepare their mouth-watering selections at Whole Foods Market stores in the DC area. Stop by and meet one of these top chefs, watch them prepare their dishes, sample the final product and hear them reminisce about food memories of Seders from their youth. We’ll distribute recipe cards featuring JFE’s Top Ten Passover recipes, a holiday guide book, Whole Foods Market Passover catering menus and information about diverse Seders scheduled around our area at each demo.
