Cookbook Book Club with Micah Siva author of Nosh

Wednesday, April 3, 2024 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Micah Siva by Hannah LozanoJoin us and our Cookbook Book Club for an evening of noshing and shmoozing!! All are welcome. 

In NOSH:  Plant-Forward Recipes Celebrating Modern Jewish Cuisine author, chef, and dietitian Micah Siva brings her love for cooking, her commitment to a plant-based, health-supportive way of eating, and her devotion to her Jewish heritage together in a collection of delicious recipes.  As a little girl, Micah’s favorite place was in the kitchen with her grandmother, Eva Epstein, who taught her that family is built by peering through the oven door, watching over a pot of chicken soup, and sitting around the dinner table. From her grandmother, she learned how to cook a Shabbat dinner and win the hearts of those she loved through their stomachs. Though she cherishes memories of stewing chickens and roasting brisket with her grandmother, Micah’s food ethos and preferences have shifted from the Eastern European “meat and potatoes” staples. Today, Micah has an avid social media following for creating appealing recipes that rethink Jewish cuisine as healthy for the body, soul, and planet while reinforcing a sense of tradition, comfort, and community. 

In 1, 2, 3, NOSH WITH ME Micah and Joshua Siva offer a fun romp through traditional Jewish foods with an educational twist for toddlers, preschoolers, and early readers—and their admirers! Following Buckwheat, a very hungry and curious dog, kids will turn the pages and count a variety of “yummy in the tummy” treats—matzo balls, bagels, kugels, knishes, and more. While practicing their numbers, from one golden challah to celebrate Shabbat to ten crispy latkes served by candlelight on Hanukkah, little ones will be introduced to cherished Jewish foods rich in cultural meaning.

MICAH SIVA is a trained chef, registered dietitian, recipe writer, and food photographer, specializing in modern Jewish cuisine. After graduating from the Natural Gourmet Institute of Health & Culinary Arts, she pursued a career in nutrition and later worked for global brands, media outlets, and publications in food media. She shares Jewish-inspired, plant-forward recipes through her blog, Nosh with Micah. Micah lives in San Francisco, California, with her husband, Josh, and dog, Buckwheat.
