JEWPANESE KABOCHA MAPLE CHALLAH

At the ripe old age of 27, I learned to bake my first challah. My teacher was none other than the late Robbie McConnell, former Publisher of the Montreal Gazette. Using his recipe as the foundation for my challah, join me in adding kabocha (Japanese pumpkin), courtesy of the one and only Kristin Eriko Posner of Nourish Co., and a splash of 100% “True North strong and free” maple syrup! I look forward to weaving this vibrant yet delicate dough into a 6-braided challah as a way of integrating and celebrating my multiple identities!

 

About Carmel:

Carmel Tanaka (pronouns: she/her) is a queer Jewpanese woman of colour from Vancouver, BC, Canada and a Community Engagement professional. Her mother is Ashkenazi Israeli and her father is Japanese Canadian. She founded JQT Vancouver, (pronounced “J-Cutie”) Vancouver’s Jewish queer trans nonprofit, and was recently named one of Be’chol Lashon’s 7 LGBTQ+ Jews of Color you should know. She also spearheads a monthly Zoom call for Jewpanese and their families from all over the world, so if you know any Jewpanese people in your life, write to the JCC and they’ll connect you to her!
