Monday, February 5, 7pm: COOKbook Author Series: “The Palestinian Table” with Reem Kassis

Price $155.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

While interest in Middle Eastern cuisines has blossomed, the nuances of Palestinian food have remained relatively unexplored – until now. The Palestinian Table is a visual feast of stunning, authentic dishes that demonstrate the true depth of this cuisine. Author Reem Kassis was born in Jerusalem to a Palestinian family revered for its cooks. Growing up, she spent days in her grandmothers', mother's, and aunts' kitchens observing and soaking up everything there was to know about Palestinian cooking. A graduate of The Wharton School and the LSE, Reem is a social psychologist and business consultant by training. At heart, however, she is a cook and a writer who uses the power of food, family and storytelling to preserve the rich culinary traditions of Palestinians and share them with the world. Join Reem this February as she prepares a traditional Palestinian meal of muhammara with pita; fried cheese and za’atar parcels with avocado preserved lemon spread; kafta in tahini sauce with vermicelli rice and palestinian salad; and dessert is a surprise! Each guest will receive a copy of The Palestinian Table.
