Demo Kitchen at Ace Hotel Brooklyn
Join Ron and Leetal Arazi, the husband-and-wife team behind NY Shuk, for an interactive class introducing their newest product: a jammy, North African tomato condiment called matbucha.
Ron and Leetal will share the history and cultural significance of matbucha (plus some stories from Ron’s Moroccan-Israeli family!), then teach you how to put the North African power condiment to use in three dishes: a Chicken & Chickpea Stew with Matbucha and Saffron, Roasted Eggplant with Matbucha and Tahini, and Grilled Halloumi with Matbucha.
NY Shuk is a Brooklyn-based company that makes handcrafted Middle Eastern pantry staples. From their chili-spiked harissa and zesty zaatar, to their briny preserved lemons, NY Shuk has been spicing up people’s dinner plates since 2012.
Doors open at 6:30pm
This event is part of a collaborative series between Demo Kitchen by Ace Hotel and The Neighborhood that has been curated by Leah Koenig, food writer and author of six cookbooks including The Jewish Cookbook and Modern Jewish Cooking.
