About this Event

Reem Kassis understands that a cuisine with a sense of place isn’t limited by borders. The writer, chef and author of the new book “The Arabesque Table” (Phaidon, 2021) was raised in Jerusalem, lives in Philadelphia, and knows how Arab-style cookery connects her family across continents and time zones. Join us to cook along with Kassis and learn about the fluid and cross-cultural nature of cuisine. As we make two breakfasts — or anytime-dishes — we will learn about food, ingredients and cuisine culture. We’ll consider and celebrate the beauty of learning from one another even as we appreciate and highlight our unique national histories. The recipes included in class are:

  • Narjissiyeh, a savory ground meat and egg breakfast that is straight out of a 10th century cookbook adapted and simplified for today
  • Almond and Pine Nut Cake with Rosewater and Date, a sweeter breakfast option chock full of the fascinating history of the almond. (Looking for a great rosewater? We love this one from Mymouné. Use promo code ROSEWATER for 10% off your order of this product.)

About Reem: Reem Kassis is a Palestinian writer whose work focuses on the intersection of food, history and politics. Prior to this career, she earned an MBA from Wharton and an MSc in social psychology from The London School of Economics and worked as a business consultant for McKinsey & Company. Today she is harnessing the power of food and storytelling to share the rich history and culinary traditions of Arabs and Palestinians with the world. You can find her writing in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The LA Times and other academic journals and specialized publications. Her debut cookbook “The Palestinian Table“ (Phaidon 2017) won The Guild of Food Writers Award, was nominated for a James Beard Award, and was one of NPR’s best books of 2017. Her second book ”The Arabesque Table“ (Phaidon 2021), is a one-of-a-kind collection of contemporary recipes tracing the rich history of Arab cuisine.
