Kitchen Kibitz will be hosting our next event in the Met Back Bay Townhouse for a special Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) pop-up dinner, “Land of Milk and Honey.” The event will be a prix fixe dinner in a communal setting exploring some of the mystical Mizrachi Jewish cuisine of Middle East, specifically the small community of Yemen. The guest chef for the evening will be Geoff Lukas of Sofra Bakery.
Making it an extra sweet new year, the menu will reflect traditional ingredients of honey, pomegranates and fenugreek, with large trays to share and plenty of entertainment throughout the night, including belly dancing performances.
