KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — People in Knoxville will want to bring their appetites during a unique event on Sunday in West Knoxville.

It's called Knoshville, named after the Yiddish word "nosh." The word means "to snack or nibble," and the event will feature Jewish delicacies that people across the city will be able to try.

They include favorites like challah, Bundt cakes as well as bagels and lox. However, there will also be less familiar treats that people can try like kugel, rugalach and shakshuka — a dish that includes poached eggs in a sauce of tomatoes, olive oil, onion and garlic.

There will also be plenty of Jewish art, music and crafts for families to enjoy in between their snacking.

It is hosted by several Jewish groups across Knoxville, including the Knoxville Jewish Alliance and Hesja Amuna Synagogue. It is being held at the Knoxville Jewish Alliance from 11 a.m. through 2 p.m., at 6800 Deane Hill Drive.
