About this Event

Join renowned cookbook author Janna Gur for an exclusive brunch on Sunday, October 27, at 10:30 a.m. at Olamaie. Tickets include a three-course brunch featuring recipes Chef Fojtasek will present with his own spin from Gur's Shuk: From Market to Table, the Heart of Israeli Home Cooking, along with Olamaie biscuits and brunch cocktails.

The morning will kickoff with passed appetizers from Olamaie, with Gur onsite to welcome and mingle with guests. Every ticket includes one signed copy of Shuk along with food and cocktails at brunch.

Israel's open-air marketplaces or shuks are the heart and soul of its daily life. Both authors' Middle Eastern heritage inform each authentic dish, from Persian rice platters and Moroccan tagines to Levantine spreads and the rare, hand-rolled couscous of North Africa. Written by two leading female voices in Israeli cuisine, Shuk presents an enticing portrait of this globally beguiling melting pot fare.

Janna Gur was born in Riga, Latvia, and immigrated to Israel in 1974. She is the founder of Al Hashulchan, the premier Israeli food and wine magazine, which she edited for almost 30 years. Gur is the author of The Book of New Israeli Food and Jewish Soul Food: From Minsk to Marrakesh and has written and/or edited nearly 40 other cookbooks. She lives in Tel Aviv.

Einat Admony, co-author, will be at the Texas Book Festival in the Central Market Cooking Tent. The schedule details will be available on the Texas Book Festival website.

The menu for the brunch will be as follows:

1st Course - Autumn Salad with Farro, Apple, and Roasted Persimmon
