Cookbook Book Club: Nosh

And we're back! I know it's been a while since our last Cookbook Book Club, but we have a great author event lined up for our next one. We really love having the author of the cookbook attend for that extra something special. Micah Siva, author of Nosh: Plant-Forward Recipes Celebrating Modern Jewish Culture, will be in town as part of her debut cookbook book tour, and her Seattle stop is Island Books! This gorgeous book came out last Tuesday, and we'll keep a stack in stock all month so you can pick up a copy to peruse before our book club meeting. Join us Wednesday, April 3 at 6:30 for an excellent time with Micah and some delicious food.

Nosh focuses on plant-forward versions of Jewish favorites, as well as innovative, modern takes on the recipes Micah grew up with. She is a trained chef and a registered dietitian, and she's turned her passion for both into a successful recipe blog and business. This is her first cookbook, and it's full of gorgeous photography (she's also a professional food photographer), concise explanations and definitions (and she's a professional recipe writer; a woman of many talents), and food that has my stomach rumbling. In fact, I already have a list of recipes I'm planning on making leading up to our book club meeting in April. From Lemony Blintzes and Vegan Potato Latkes, to Chickpea and Olive Shakshuka and Olive Oil, Pistachio, and Ricotta Cornmeal Sheet Cake, as well as several types of kugel, Micah's book is stuffed with colorful recipes that are suited for a variety of occasions and will delight everyone who comes to your table.

We can't wait to meet together again and share all of the amazing dishes made from the recipes in this book. Pick one that intrigues you, have fun making it, and bring it to share while Micah tells us about her book and the inspiration behind it. She'll stick around to sign copies while we mingle and eat delicious things. We'll also have copies of her children's book 1, 2, 3 Nosh With Me on hand for signing if you want to introduce your little ones to traditional Jewish foods. Can't wait to see you there!
