Join UJA Women for a cooking demonstration with New York Times best-selling cookbook author and chef, Adeena Sussman. You can cook along with Adeena, or just enjoy the show as she prepares Thanksgiving dishes that will shine on our dinner tables.
You’ll also hear about UJA’s life-changing work since Covid-19 first hit and our ongoing impact on those most in need.
Recipes and cooking instructions will be provided in your confirmation email. If you are cooking along with Adeena, please prep all ingredients in advance.
There is no charge to attend this event.
This event welcomes donors who give a gift of $360 or more, individually or as a family, to UJA's Annual Campaign.
Israeli food expert Adeena Sussman is the author of Sababa: Fresh, Sunny Flavors From My Israeli Kitchen, which was named a Best Fall cookbook by The New York Times, Bon Appetit, and Food & Wine. She is finishing her follow-up cookbook, Shabbat--All About Weekend Cooking on Israel Both Modern and Traditional, to be released spring 2023.
The co-author of 15 cookbooks, three of Adeena’s most recent collaborations, including Cravings and Cravings: Hungry for More With Chrissy Teigen, were New York Times best sellers.
A lifelong visitor to Israel who has been writing about that country’s food culture for almost 20 years, Adeena made aliyah in December 2018. She cooks and writes in Tel Aviv, where she lives in the shadow of that city’s Carmel Market with her husband, Jay Shofet.
