Join ToI Community for culinary conversation with cookbook author Adeena Sussman – The Times of Israel

Please join us this Wednesday, October 7, for the latest in our Behind the Headlines video series, exclusively for the ToI Community.

This week we’re speaking with Adeena Sussman, cookbook author of “Sababa,” named a Best Fall 2019 cookbook by the New York Times, Bon Appétit, and Food & Wine.

Before moving to Israel several years ago, Sussman spent 20 years honing her culinary skills in New York, where she moved from northern California. She attended the Institute of Culinary Education, and for the next decade and a half, wrote articles, tested recipes, and co-authored 11 books, including the New York Times bestseller “Cravings” and its follow-up “Cravings: Hungry for More” with model and talk-show star Chrissy Teigen.

In our Behind the Headlines series, ToI reporters and editors video interview influential individuals from a wide range of fields. All sessions are aired exclusively to the Times of Israel Community before being shared with our broader readership.

Sussman’s Israeli-American identity flavors the recipes in her cookbook “Sababa.” Some might even call her a “culinary diplomat,” as she collaborates with Israeli chefs and writers with one foot planted firmly in the United States.

The cookbook is also inspired by Tel Aviv’s Shuk HaCarmel, or open-air market, where in addition to fresh ingredients, Sussman has also found a warm community.

The cookbook author will speak with The Times of Israel’s Culture & Lifestyle Editor, Jessica Steinberg.
