Jewish Book Month at JCC: Chef, “The Simchah Cookbook” author Avi Shemtov

November 13, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


In Hebrew, “simcha” means “joy and celebration,” and Chef Avi Shemtov’s food has been filling diners with these delicious emotions for several years at his restaurant Simcha, located in Sharon, Massachusetts.

Now, with “The Simcha Cookbook,” you can recreate the delectable dishes that honor the traditions of Shemtov’s Turkish-Israeli roots, with contemporary flavor-forward twists: Yemenite fried chicken with labne and smoked potato purée, whole-roasted cauliflower with soom tahini, shakshuka, and the traditional Yemenite hot sauce.

Brimming with original vibrant photography, “The Simcha Cookbook” is an enticing culinary global journey.

Includes book signing and lunch.

This event is in memory of Susan Steigman, former JCCNS staff member, longtime JBM committee member and dedicated JCCNS volunteer.
