Enjoy a talk and tastes of French Jewish cuisine guided by Joan Nathan, the host of PBS’s Jewish Cooking in America and author of ten acclaimed cookbooks. In Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous: My Search for Jewish Cooking in France, Nathan traces her family’s heritage and explores cooking as culture. Nathan is a 3-time James Beard award winner and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs including the Today Show, Good Morning America, The Martha Stewart Show, and National Public Radio. Lynne Rosetto Kasper, host of NPR’s Splendid Table says, “When Joan Nathan decides to dig into Jewish heritage anywhere in the world, we readers should just fasten our seat belts and get ready for a glorious ride.” Moderated by Traveler Magazine Editor Don George.

A reception, sponsored by Royal Wine Corp., will follow the event.

Read an interview with Joan Nathan on DCist.
