Chef Alon Shaya at Uptown Crescent City Farmers Market

Please join us at the Tuesday Crescent City Farmer's Market for the launch of two-time James Beard Award-winning chef Alon Shaya's new book, SHAYA: An Odyssey of Food, My Journey Back to Israel.

An exciting debut cookbook that confirms the arrival of a new guru chef…A moving, deeply personal journey of survival and discovery that tells of the evolution of a cuisine and of the transformative power and magic of food and cooking.

Alon’s journey is as gripping and as seductive as his cooking…Lovely stories, terrific food.”
Yotam Ottolenghi, author of Jerusalem: A Cookbook

“Breathtaking. Bravo.”—Joan Nathan, author of King Solomon’s Table

These are stories of place, of people, and of the food that connects them, a memoir of one man’s culinary sensibility, with food as the continuum throughout his journey—guiding his personal and professional decisions, punctuating every memory, choice, every turning point in his life. Interspersed with glorious full-color photographs and illustrations that follow the course of all the flavors Shaya has tried, places he’s traveled, things he’s experienced, lessons he’s learned—more than one hundred recipes—from Roasted Chicken with Harissa to Speckled Trout with Tahini and Pine Nuts; Crab Cakes with Preserved Lemon Aioli; Roasted Cast-Iron Ribeye; Marinated Soft Cheese with Herbs and Spices; Buttermilk Biscuits; and Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Whipped Feta.

You are also invited to join us the following evening, Wednesday, March 14, at the Uptown JCC, where were Chef Alon Shaya will present and sign his book at an event commencing at 7:00 pm. Read more..
