Israeli Food, American Kitchen: Yom Ha’atzmaut Cooking Class

Hosted By: Ritualwell

Celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence day, by learning how to make a signature Israeli meal: Falafel.

Falafel arrived to Israel with the many Middle Eastern Jewish communities that migrated to the newborn Jewish state 73 years ago and became a well-loved street food that can be bought at almost every street corner. Join Adva Chattler, an Israeli-Mizrahi Jew who loves food, cooking and teaching about her culinary heritage, for a cooking session to learn how to make real Falafel from scratch along with all the fixings!
