On October 25, Laila launched this new edition of the Gaza Kitchen
cookbook with a fun "Facebook Live" video
event that attracted more than 1,700 viewers. In mid-November, she will be joined in United States by her co-author on Gaza Kitchen
, Maggie Schmitt. (The photo shows Laila and Maggie at a presentation they did when the first edition of the book came out, in 2013.)
The Shepard's wonderful event on November 16 is presented by James Beard Award-winning chef/owner Susan Regis and chef de cuisine
Peter McKenzie, using recipes from The Gaza Kitchen
. It will be your opportunity to experience some unique Palestinian culinary treasures and to meet and mingle with the authors.
Laila and Maggie will be visiting Boston as part of an east-coast tour. In Washington DC they'll be speaking at the Library of Congress. In New York, they're joining renowned British-Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi at two ticketed dinners organized by The Met Museum.
Those "Met" events sold out in mid-August!
Maybe some of your New York friends would like to come to Boston for the Shepard dinner, instead?
