LACONIA — In addition to announcing Sunday, July 12 as the date of the 18th Annual Jewish Food Festival, Temple B'nai Israel (TBI) of Laconia has announced that it will open up its pre-order process to the general public. The online pre-orders are currently open to the public online through June 7.
This change was precipitated by last year's record breaking attendance. Even after diligent efforts to significantly increase the quantities of all of the food, TBI still sold out before the published closing time. All foods are homemade. The pre-order menu includes blintzes, chopped herring, chopped chicken liver, mock chopped liver (vegetarian), brisket, corned beef, pastrami, tongue, meat knishes, potato knishes, latkes (potato pancakes) matzo ball soup, noodle kugel, stuffed cabbage, rugelach, and strudel.
To place pre-orders and get more information on the foods being offered as well as prices, go to www.tbinh.org. Most major credit cards and PayPal payments are accepted. Pick-up for all preorders will be on Saturday, July 11 between 10 a.m. an 3 p.m. or at the Festival on Sunday, June 12. All pick-ups will be at Temple B'nai Israel on 210 Court St. in Laconia. For pre-orders of $65 or greater, individuals will receive a copy of the TBI cookbook from which many of the prized recipes are derived.
