Friday, November 11
The 60th Annual Jewish Book Fair will present “The Essence of Chaldean Culture Through Food – A Tasting” on Friday, November 11 at 11:30 AM at the Jewish Community Center on West Maple Road in W. Bloomfield, MI. Join us for a culinary journey to one of the world’s oldest cuisines, dating back to ancient Mesopotamia. Demonstrating recipes from the new Chaldean American Ladies of Charity (CALC) cookbook, Ma Baseema, the presentation will also include a history of the Chaldeans, both in Mesopotamia and the Metro Detroit area. Members of the CALC will demonstrate making 2 foods: vegetarian dolma and baklawa.
Presenting a meal to guests is an important cultural experience of the Chaldean community. Thus, we invite you to come to the table to share and enjoy foods that are time-honored traditions of the Chaldean culture. The cost is $10 per person, for a meal that includes vegetarian dolma, baklawa, and Iraqi salad. Registration is required by November 3. To register, please call the Book Fair Office at 248.432.5692 or order online at www.jccdet.org
This program is co-sponsored by the Chaldean/Jewish Building Community Initiative – Arts & Culture Division and WISDOM.
