Greenlight Cookbook Club tastes and discusses Balaboosta
Greenlight’s new Cookbook Club, led by neighbor and educated foodie Grant Bremer, meets on the second Tuesday of every third month to share dishes and discussion of featured cookbooks, with a focus on locally available ingredients and accessible yet adventurous recipes. For January, the group will taste and discuss Balaboosta by Einat Admony. Admony is a 21st-century balaboosta (Yiddish for perfect housewife): a mother and wife, but also a chef busy running three bustling New York City restaurants. Her debut cookbook features 140 of the recipes she cooks for the people she loves, in which her mixed Israeli heritage (Yemenite, Persian) seamlessly blends with the fresh, sophisticated Mediterranean palate she honed while working in some of New York City’s most beloved kitchens. The result is a melting pot of meals for every need and occasion: exotic and exciting dinner-party dishes, meals just for kids, healthy options, satisfying comfort food, and so much more.
Featured titles are discounted 15% for the three months preceding each meeting. First-time attendees can attend without cooking; for every subsequent meeting attended they are asked to contribute a recipe for the group.
