Cooking Class: Israeli Cuisine

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

I recently had the pleasure of attending a DeGustibus cooking demonstration by Chef Michael Solomonov, who specializes in Israeli cuisine.  His Philadelphia restaurant, Zahav, is renowned, with Chef Michael recently honored with a James Beard Foundation award.

You see, I’ve been working some late nights behind the scenes, prepping for this blog’s switch from Blogger to WordPress (yay!).  Joy, of How Joyful Design Studio, put together an awesome new look for Big Apple Nosh – hopefully if everything goes smoothly I’ll reveal it to you next week!  In the mean time, since I’ll be toiling away this weekend, I thought it only fitting that the buzzfood for this month’s NoshGirl Party was:
