Too Good to Passover

Join Middle Eastern food preservationist, author (and Penn alum!) Jennifer Abadi for a special talk on her new cookbook Too Good To Passover, where she will discuss the varying foods and customs for Passover from the Sephardic and Judeo-Arabic communities of Africa, Asia and Europe. Jennifer will share the memories and stories of individuals whom she interviewed for her book, and explain how her love for the Middle Eastern culture and its language, food, and history culminates in her 700-page cookbook of over 200 recipes from 23 communities — a project that took 9 years to research, develop, and write!

This event will take place in the Annenberg School for Communication, Room 111.
