Event description

Description

Peterson Garden Project's Cookbook Club is all the best parts of a potluck, book club and dinner party! Make a dish from this month's book, bring it to the dinner (along with a bottle of wine or beer, if you'd like!), meet new people, try new recipes, discuss the cookbook and enjoy the company of your fellow diners.

Zahav showcases the melting-pot cooking of Israel, especially the influences of the Middle East, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Eastern Europe. Solomonov's food includes little dishes called mezze, such as the restaurant's insanely popular fried cauliflower; a hummus so ethereal that it put Zahav on the culinary map; and a pink lentil soup with lamb meatballs that one critic called "Jerusalem in a bowl." It also includes a majestic dome of Persian wedding rice and a whole roasted lamb shoulder with pomegranate and chickpeas that's a celebration in itself.

All Solomonov's dishes are brilliantly adapted to local and seasonal ingredients. Zahav tells an authoritative and personal story of how Solomonov embraced the food of his birthplace. With its blend of technique and passion, this book shows readers how to make his food their own.

This event is BYOB. Copies of the book are available at the Chicago Public Library.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • After registering, you'll receive a link to a Google doc along so you can add:
    • the name of the recipe(s) you're planning to make
    • if oven or stove space is needed for reheating/keeping a dish warm
  • As much as possible, we stick to the recipe as written.
  • We meet, we eat, we drink (BYO). We talk about the recipes we made, what worked and what didn’t, what other recipes we want to try (or have tried).
  • We pick a cookbook for the next meeting.
