CKCA Cooks for Joan Nathan's Cookbook Signing in NYC!

Famed kosher cookbook author and NY Times writer Joan Nathan has hired CKCA to cook for her book signing and cooking demonstration at the Degustibus Cooking School at Macy's Herald Square on November 11th! Nathan's newest book is "Quiches, Kugels and Couscous: My Search for Jewish Cooking in France," published by Knopf. It was released November 2nd and is available for purchase here.

Because the Degustibus Cooking School is not a kosher facility, Nathan asked CKCA to prepare a set of delicious recipes selected from several of her cookbooks in advance -- so that they can be served under proper kosher supervision at the cooking demo. The cooking will take place with Chef Avram Wiseman helming a group of high achieving CKCA student and alumni chefs. Rabbi Zushe Blech will head up the kashruth supervision at the Midwood Jewish Center in advance of the event, and CKCA Pro Program Alumna and Mashgacha Joelle Cohn will supervise en route and at the event itself.

Chef Wiseman reports that there are one or two spots still available for students chefs to help assist with the event, so contact him at avram AT if you are interested and have availability on November 10th in Midwood or November 11th in Manhattan.

The recipes that CKCA chefs will be preparing (all from Joan Nathan cookbooks) are as follows:

Moroccan Chicken with Olives and Lemons (Foods of Israel Today, page 286)

Israeli Couscous with Seasonal Vegetables (Foods of Israel Today, page 247)

Moroccan Red Pepper Salad (Jewish Cooking in America, page 277)

Citrus Fruit Soup with Dates and Mint (Quiches, Kugels and Couscous)

Ghouribi (Moroccan Sugar Cookies), (The Jewish Holiday Cookbook, page 320)
