SF Bay Area Purim Cook-A-Long: Hamantaschen with Chef Michael Solomonov
February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST
For far too long the hamantaschen has been cornered into being the expectedly sweet holiday treat. Recently, a new generation of Israeli bakers have been turning the iconic tricorner sweets on their head by using unconventional flavor combinations that appeal to a more sophisticated palate. That’s a trend we can TOTALLY get behind.
Celebrate Purim with us as James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef Michael Solomonov, co-owner and executive chef of Zahav, takes on an old favorite and transforms it with modern, savory flavors – just for us! Grab your favorite adult beverage and join Michael for a special demo and conversation as he walks us through his fun and fanciful recipe for feta-and-leek hamantaschen. Learn about culinary trends in Israel and follow along for a salty, delightfully cheesy Purim twist you’ve probably never thought of.
