Come cook with us! We’ll be learning how to make sfenj with Téa and Mila of Immigrant Food, in DC. Sfenj, meaning sponge in Arabic, are the golden, unfilled fried treats eaten by Moroccans during Hanukkah and other special occasions. They are often coated in sugar or honey. Come *soak up* this time with their team, because we swear you won’t want to eat just one.

Immigrant Food is D.C.’s first cause-casual restaurant that is a place for advocacy, change, and community. Award-winning Chef Enrique Limardo’s creative menu reflects how we see America at its core: diverse, nourishing and welcoming. They donate parts of our space to five local immigrant-service NGOs for classes, training sessions and meetings. And you can engage directly with them by signing up to volunteer, donate, or join their letter-signing campaigns, marches, or social events!

Stay tuned here — we’ll be adding in some ingredients that you’ll want on hand to follow along with this demonstration.
