Cooking with Adeena Sussman: Live from Tel Aviv

Sunday, February 28, 2021 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Live from her kitchen in Tel Aviv, Adeena will walk us through two of her favorite recipes!

Join us for a one-hour cooking demonstration with Adeena Sussman, author of Sababa: Fresh, Sunny Flavors from My Israeli Kitchen. We’ll chat with Adeena about cooking in quarantine, and she’ll guide us through making (and then eating!) two of her favorite recipes: Tahini Blondies and Smoothies featured in her best-selling cookbook, Sababa.

Tickets start at $36.









Adeena Sussman is the author of Sababa: Fresh, Sunny Flavors From My Israeli Kitchen, named a Best Fall 2019 cookbook by The New York Times, Bon Appetit, and Food & Wine. She is currently working on her follow-up to Sababa, all about the foods of Shabbat.

The co-author of 14 cookbooks, Adeena’s three 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 became a citizen 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. You can follow her on Instagram @adeenasussman.


What is Tahini?
Tahini is a paste made from toasted, ground sesame seeds. The texture is like peanut butter, with a light, nutty sesame flavor. It’s best known as an ingredient in hummus but widely used in many dishes, as we will learn from Adeena. [Tahini can be swapped with peanut butter, almond butter, soy-nut butter, or any other kind of nut-type butter.]
