WCBI Book Club:
Jerusalem: A Cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi & Sami Tamimi
Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at 11:00 AM at the home of Cathy Sperling
This will be an off-site program with book club members preparing recipes from the cookbook. Miriam Beckerman will host a demonstration of one of the recipes from the cookbook.
Join us as we take closer look at the collection of 120 recipes exploring the flavors of Jerusalem from the New York Times bestselling author of Plenty, one of the most lauded cookbooks of 2011. In Jerusalem, Yotam Ottolenghi re-teams with his friend (and the co-owner of his restaurants) Sami Tamimi. Together they explore the vibrant cuisine of their home city--with its diverse Muslim, Jewish, Arab, Christian, and Armenian communities. Both men were born in Jerusalem in the same year--Tamimi on the Arab east side and Ottolenghi in the Jewish west. This cookbook offers recipes from their unique cross-cultural perspectives including Charred Baby Okra with Tomato and Preserved Lemon, Braised Lamb Meatballs with Sour Cherries, and Clementine and Almond Cake. With five bustling restaurants in London and two stellar cookbooks, Ottolenghi is one of the most respected chefs in the world; Jerusalem is his most personal, original, and beautiful cookbook yet.
Space is limited to the first 18 people who RSVP. Contact Ellen Federman email@example.com to reserve your place at this program.

Mah-Jongg in 1920s Popular Culture: Illustrated Sets and Rules of Play by Jeffrey J. Gordon is an expanded guide to his Mah-Jongg Sets and How the Game was Played in the 1920s. It retains the geography, history, Jewish contribution, and exceptional importance of Mah-Jongg in 1920s popular culture, as well as explaining Mah-Jongg set components and game play. It also retains detailed coverage of the many varieties of 1920s Mah-Jongg sets showing their boxes, tiles, dice, wind discs, counters, instruction booklets, and racks. In addition, many full color illustrations of the most striking boxes and English translations of the Chinese writing on boxes and tiles are included.
