MJCCA Book Fest: Adeena Sussman, Shabbat

view options The 32nd Edition of the Book Festival of the MJCCA Presents Adeena Sussman, Shabbat: Recipes and Rituals From My Table to Yours

Author Talk, Q & A & Book Signing

Includes Shabbat Buffet Luncheon

Join us at our Shabbat lunch table for an afternoon with renowned chef, food writer, and bestselling cookbook author Adeena Sussman. For her and for many, Shabbat is a treasured time when family and friends come together to relax, unwind, and revel in one another’s company during open-ended, tantalizing meals. Because tradition dictates that the Sabbath is reserved for downtime, Shabbat cooking is all about smart cooking techniques and sound prep. You’ll love these easy-to-prepare, crowd-pleasing recipes for nostalgic, cozy mains like Fig & Pomegranate Brisket, Bubbe’s Extra-Crispy Potato Kugel, Moroccan Carrot Salad, Roasted Kohlrabi, and Cherry & Feta Salad. And from the show-stopping Lemon Black-Sesame Bundt Cake to the rich comfort of Vegan Rice Pudding, there’s always something special for dessert.

Woven throughout the recipes is a rich portrait of Shabbat in Israel, where it is practically a national holiday. Taking us inside the kitchens and traditions of local cooks who have shared their most beloved recipes, Shabbat brings to life Sussman’s adopted home country with transporting, slice-of-life storytelling. Now more than ever, Shabbat cooking is what we all need.


Adeena Sussman is the author of 14 cookbooks, including three collaborations with Chrissy Teigen that were all New York Times bestsellers. She made aliyah (became a citizen of Israel) in December 2018.

Books will be available for purchase on the day of the event from our partner bookseller, A Cappella Books!
