A journey back to Israel, with Alon Shaya.

We are thrilled to welcome one of the most prominent chefs in the country, Alon Shaya, for a powerful evening of cultural exploration!

Ari met Alon last year at the Jewish Food Conference in North Carolina. It didn’t take long for a connection to form with the chef of New Orleans’ Saba, who was named one of the "50 People Who Are Changing the South" by Southern Living magazine in 2015, and one of the "50 Most Influential Jews in America" by The Forward. Like Zingerman’s, Alon’s Pomegranate Hospitality engages the community and celebrates cultural diversity. Our special dinner with him will capture the spirit of of these values as we taste the evolution of Israeli cuisine with Alon.
