  • 09:00 — 15:00

Because each of us has a dessert that, with one bite, brings us right back to our childhood.

Join us at Cafe Asif for a special pop-up with pastry chef Michal Goldberger, who will put modern and seasonal spins on nostalgic Israeli sweets like a homemade version of the pink coconut candy of our childhoods, an ever-so-light ketzf v’katzefet cake made with whipped cream and meringue, and a layered biscuit cake with housemade ricotta.

There will also be malabi tartlets with pomegranate sauce, chocolate rugelach, a sandwich cookie with loquat jam, brioche with fruit compote and three babkas — classic chocolate, apple spice, and one with marzipan and mahleb (ground cherry seeds).

Enjoy the desserts at Cafe Asif or take them home.
