Cookbook author Joan Nathan sows seeds of tradition, right here at Zingerman’s Roadhouse!

Joan is a James Beard Award-winning cookbook author (and a University of Michigan grad), and with her 11 books has gathered timeless and delicious experiences from the far corners of the world. She will share the bounty of her latest collection with us as we recreate several recipes from her latest book, King Solomon's Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World. Inside, readers will find more than 170 recipes, from Israel to Italy to India and beyond.

Join us for our Harvest Special Dinner #213 on Monday, August 28th, as we reap the lifetime of stories and recipes the tour de force of Jewish cooking, Joan Nathan, has accumulated for us.

Just as the biblical King Solomon cross-pollinated culinary cultures by sending out emissaries across ancient land and seas, “Nathan serves as a modern emissary, gathering recipes and stories from all around the globe.” —Tim Carman, The Washington Post

We will not only taste recipes that have planted the seeds for Jewish cuisine, but the “queen of American Jewish cooking” (Houston Chronicle), will weave rich stories from across the ages as we explore the treasure that is King Solomon's Table. Don’t miss out on this incredible dinner, and a one-of-a-kind opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Joan’s nationally acclaimed new book!
