Friends and Family Series: Chocolate Art for Easter
Saturday | April 3 | 2 – 4 pm

Join Linda, a professional chocolate, sugar artist, and a Food Network Candyland star, who will guide you to make chocolate ornaments, ribbons, leaves, flowers and even boxes without needing any special molds. We’ll use basic household items with store-brand chocolates to make decorative chocolate art. You’ll receive a zoom link and a recipe packet prior to the class. The packet will include suggested local chocolate sources that you can buy. 

Instructor: Linda Khachadurian. Register for this class here.

Cambridge Historical Society

March 2021 marks the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic. To honor the Cantabrigians who have died, we are installing markers on the lawn of our headquarters, the Hooper-Lee-Nichols House. Each marker, a butterfly, a symbol of hope and the shape of Cambridge itself, represents a life lost to the virus and a missing piece in the mosaic of stories that together make up the history of Cambridge. The installation will be up through March 26.

Cambridge Historical Society, 159 Brattle Street, (617) 547-4252


Place your order now to get a Passover Box on March 25 or 26!

Passover is just around the corner! We’re so excited to be collaborating with our dear friend Rabbi Barry Dolinger of Congregation Beth Sholom to create a deep, rich, springtime spread of dishes that are great for one big seder or many smaller meals throughout a week. 

Every item in this meal box, from your first sip of soup to your last bite of flourless chocolate cake, is Kosher for Passover — we want to thank Barry for helping Chris and our kitchen team do the hard work to get there with no added cost to you all!

All items are heat-and-eat or require minimal prep (5-10 minutes) to get on the table. 

Get yours now!
