***VIRTUAL***The Great Big Jewish Food Fest

The festival is open to all: no experience or talent required.

A Virtual Festival About Jewish Food

The Jewish Food Festival is completely free! Over 10 days we will have a variety of events–workshops & conversations, happy hours, and Shabbat dinners, and so much more–which will take place over Zoom, Instagram, and Facebook. We’ll also be unveiling a library of unique Anytime Content that can be experienced during the festival.

Reserve your spot on your schedule of events.

Browse the schedule and sign up for any and all events you’d like to explore. We’ll send you the link and instructions on how to participate, then get comfy and come join us! Some events have limited space, so sign up to claim your spot.

Here are just a few of our confirmed presenters… and more are being added daily!
Come check out the full and growing list of talent.


A 10-day online festival celebrating the history, diversity, and excitement for all things Jewish food. Join us for cooking classes, virtual deli tours, film screenings, panel discussions and so much more.

All events are free and open to the public thanks to generous funding from our donors. We welcome and encourage donations to help support those in the food industry who have lost critical revenue during the COVID-19 crisis and those who are experiencing food insecurity.  Learn more about the funds we are raising money for here.


The Great Big Jewish Food Fest was born out of this moment and created for this moment. The 10 day Festival (May 19 until the holiday of Shavuot on May 28), was created out of a moment of opportunity, as people are at home and in their kitchens, when food professionals are seeking new opportunities to share their expertise, and when we can hold a top-tier international festival with relative ease (no travel, no conference facilities, and ironically, no catering to coordinate!). 


We’ve designed programming for all ages and interests. Whether you’re an experienced cook or a novice who’s just getting started in the kitchen, you are welcome. Just please make sure to wash your hands before you sit down for a meal.


The Great Big Jewish Food Fest is a collaboration among folks in the culinary and Jewish communities who saw a unique opportunity to enrich the Jewish food space during this unique and challenging time. Check out the extraordinary team who pulled this together in just a few weeks. Darim Online is the fiscal sponsor for the Festival, and we are so thankful for foundation support to make this free for all who want to participate.
