Nosh Fest III - South Florida’s Jewish Food FestivalSunday, February 12, 10am-3pm – Temple Beth Emet, 4807 S. Flamingo Road, Cooper City

Nosh Fest III, South Florida’s Jewish Food Festival, will not only feature delicious Jewish cuisine for noshing (tasting), but more importantly, it will also benefit local food banks including Feeding South Florida™ (formerly Daily Bread Food Bank). Feeding South Florida, the primary beneficiary, will receive canned goods and other nonperishable items donated as the cost of admission to the third annual food festival, as well as prepared foods which can be served for dinner at several charitable organizations after the event.
More than 2,000 attendees are expected to attend Nosh Fest III. Those attending will “pay” for admission with five nonperishable food items. Nosh-sized samples of Jewish cuisine such as Israeli falafel, knish, ruggulah and more can be purchased at nominal prices. Attendees will also enjoy cooking demonstrations and competitions, children’s activities, arts and crafts, and entertainment, all of which are free.
Nosh Fest III celebrity guests will include Aria Kagan, Season 6 Finalist on “The Next Food Network Star,” Adam Kuperstein, sports anchor and reporter with NBC6 Miami and WQAM-560 radio, and Craig Setzer, meteorologist with CBS4 News Miami. Professional and student chefs from the Culinary School at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale will also be in attendance.
Nosh Fest was created in 2009 by volunteer leaders of Congregation Temple Beth Emet in Cooper City, Florida as a way to gather the community for a taste of Jewish-style cuisine while working to feed hungry individuals in our community who were suffering as a result of difficult economic times.
