During the last thirty years Israeli cooking has truly arrived on the international scene. It now goes far, far beyond hummus and falafel, (not that there’s anything wrong with these classic dishes).
Much of the new food focus highlights the rise of Sephardic cooking. Its delightful range of spices, flavors, grains, produce and modern fusions have garnered considerable culinary attention.
Sarasota Sister Cities is sponsoring an opportunity to enjoy tastes of professionally prepared contemporary Sephardic cooking including appetizers, main dishes, sides to desserts at Arts Center Sarasota (on Tamiami Trail next to the Municipal Auditorium). There will be vegetarian items and, hopefully, leftovers for you to take home.
In addition to enjoying wonderful food – recipes will be provided – attendees will learn about the fascinating history of Sephardic Jewry and about Tel Mond, Sarasota’s Israeli Sister City.
To make your reservation by February 10 please register and pay on the Sister Cities Association of Sarasota website: www.sarasotasistercities.org and click on Special Events.
