Last night was the first class in our Master Chef cooking series taught by Jewish cookbook queen, Joan Nathan. Our kitchen was fully prepped for Joan’s signature menu steeped in Jewish food history and of course, her well-known cookbooks, Quiches, Kugels & Couscous and King Solomon’s Table.

Highlights from Joan’s vast Jewish food knowledge included tales of Babylonian diets, ancient Far East spice routes, King Solomon’s era and notably, the prevalence of chickpeas in the ancient world. Our Skirball student chefs teamed up in small groups to create last night’s incredible dinner, which featured spicy Libyan haraimi, smoked eggplant with tahini, feta and pomegranate and a bright lemon tart for dessert.

Our next cooking class will be taught by Philadelphia’s award-winning star chef, Michael Solomonov, on December 8. Sign up HERE.
