Join chef Aliza Grayevsky Somekh for an exploration of the unique blend of cultures and cuisines that make the flavors of Jerusalem so delicious! In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to prepare and taste a variety of different dishes as diverse as the regions that they come from.

Dukkah (pronounced DOO-kah), an egyptian spice mix, gets its name from the Arabic word for “to crush” or “to pound,” which is precisely how it’s made. It is a mixture of nuts and spices that are grounded into a coarse powder. You can serve it in olive oil as a dipping sauce, sprinkle it on cheese, yogurt and vegetables, or use it as a rub for meat, fish or poultry.

Chraime is a fish dish prepared in tomato sauce, hot peppers and other spices ,which is a traditional food of Jews of North African origin. Participants will prepare this to enjoy with freshly baked Challah.

In addition, participants will take home recipes and spices to create their own dishes at home!
