"A Night in Jerusalem"
A Middle-Eastern Pop Up
Please join us for an engaging evening at a clandestine location in Miami Beach as we explore the exotic and seducing flavors of Jerusalem. For our third installment of Saffron Supper Club we'll be taking over Hidden Kitchen, located inside the Imperial House on Miami Beach. Helmed by Chef Michael Jacobs (the private chef of the Miami Heat), this will be an intimate dinner where we'll enjoy traditional Arabic, Israeli and Persian dishes. Get ready for a journey to the Middle East in Miami Beach!
"A Night in Jerusalem" is inspired by our love of the unique and beguiling cooking of this holy ancient city. “Jerusalem’s food is idiosyncratic yet has a clear voice,” says Yotam Ottolenghi, author of cult-hit cookbook Jerusalem. Using Mr. Ottolenghi’s cookbook as inspiration, we will jump off into a Jerusalem night, letting the scents of cardamom, fenugreek and sumac guide the way.
Drawing on our various experiences with the city–Sara has lived, studied and had a wedding there and Michael has cooked at the legendary King David Hotel–we will attempt to capture some of the passion and energy Jerusalemites have for culinary creativity.
