Sababa: Cookbook Author Adeena Sussman at Temple Beth Israel

Temple Beth Israel and Sharsheret welcome cookbook author Adeena Sussman. This is a ticketed event. For details and purchasing information, look here. 

In an Israeli cookbook as personal as it is global, Adeena Suss­man cel­e­brates the tableau of fla­vors the region has to offer. In Hebrew (derived from the orig­i­nal Ara­bic) saba­ba means ​“every­thing is awe­some” and it’s this sun­ny spir­it with which the Amer­i­can food writer and expat Adeena Suss­man cooks up meals in her Tel Aviv kitchen. Every morn­ing, Suss­man makes her way through the bustling stalls of Shuk Hacarmel. In Saba­ba, Suss­man presents 125 recipes for dish­es inspired by this culi­nary won­der­land and by the wide-vary­ing influ­ences sur­round­ing her in Israel. Amer­i­cans have begun to instinctively crave the spicy, bright fla­vors of Israeli cui­sine, and in this time­ly cook­book, Suss­man shows read­ers how to use bor­der-cross­ing kitchen sta­ples– tahi­ni, sumac silan (date syrup), haris­sa za’atar — to deli­cious effect while also intro­duc­ing more exot­ic spices and ingre­di­ents. From Freekeh and Roast­ed Grape Sal­ad and Crudo with Cher­ries and Squeezed Toma­toes, to Schug Mar­i­nat­ed Lamb Chops and Tahi­ni Caramel Tart, Sussman’s recipes are the ulti­mate every­day guide to the Israeli kitchen.

Adeena Suss­man has co-authored eleven cook­books, includ­ing the New York Times #1 best­seller Crav­ings—and its best­selling fol­low-up Hun­gry for More—with Chris­sy Teigen. She is also the author of Tahi­ni. She moved to Israel in 2015 and lives foot­steps from Carmel Mar­ket. She has writ­ten about Israeli food for Food & Wine, The Wall Street Jour­nal, and many others.
