Learn to cook the food of the Jewish diaspora with legendary cookbook author Joan Nathan! Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Cooking School in downtown Boston is hosting Joan for a cooking demonstration, book signing and reception.
With King Solomon’s appetites and explorations in mind, celebrated author Joan Nathan gathered more than 170 recipes that span the millennia and cultures in her award-winning book “King Solomon’s Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World.” The book’s recipes include classics like Yemenite chicken soup with dill, cilantro and parsley, and contemporary riffs on traditional dishes such as Baghdadi chicken with rice, coconut and cilantro, and Roman ricotta cheese torte.
In this demonstration cooking class, Joan will show you how to make a selection of her favorite recipes from “King Solomon’s Table,” including huevos haminados con spinaci (long-cooked hard-boiled eggs with spinach) and socca (chickpea pancakes with fennel, onion and rosemary). Beyond cooking, her classes are filled with fascinating historical details, personal histories and fantastic recipes that showcase the diversity of Jewish cuisine.
After the demonstration, there will be a book signing and reception featuring tastes of the recipes made in class.
