Brunch with Joan Nathan-King Solomon’s Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World

Join us for a special brunch with the Queen of American Jewish Cooking, the James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Joan Nathan, to celebrate her latest release that features recipes such as Yemenite chicken soup, Roman ricotta cheese crostata, and Sri Lankan breakfast buns. In this very special appearance, she will not only share delectable recipes, but play historian and time-traveler. Book signing to follow.

The menu for this 11 am brunch includes Spinach Feta Burekas, Gravlaks with Mustard Sauce, Azerbaijani Kukusa with Swiss Chard and Herbs, and Chocolate Babka for dessert!

“Over the last four decades, Joan has become the most important preservationist of Jewish food traditions, researching and honoring the rich heritage that has connected people for millennia. I still marvel at her devotion...” — Alice Waters

“…Nathan deftly weaves together small personal stories with great historical narratives whilst always making sure our appetites.
