A MELTING POT OF MIRACLES
Time & Location
About the Event
Hanukkah is upon us, with its warm lights, social-distancing family gatherings (zoom is now an integral part of our families) and food. And who better to introduce how Israelis celebrate the Festival of Lights than a celebrated Israeli chef.
In this A Melting Pot of Miracles event, Chef Nir Zook will teach us how Israelis take the traditional potato latke and spice it up with a wide array of innovative toppings. You certainly can teach the “old dog” new tricks…and tasty ones at that!
Nir is an award-winning Israeli chef who has opened multiple restaurants, authored numerous cookbooks, and starred in various television programs. He was selected by the Foreign Ministry of Israel as a featured chef in the book “Face of Israel” representing the vibrancy of Israeli culinary traditions. Perhaps most impressively, he conceived and starred in the successful television series “A Chef by Surprise” where he would show up to people’s homes and cook a meal for them from only the items in their kitchen.
Admission is free.
