Bukharian Bread & Dumpling Soup called Shurb...

Join me tonight, with  Blog Talk Radio & The Kosher Scene, where we will once again, be’ezras Hashem, be transmitting live from Nargila Grill (1599 York Avenue – between E. 84 and E. 85th Street – New York 10028; Tel: 212.535.3700).  Why? Because… tonight the owner’s mother will be cooking her famed Bukharian dishes (not to mention that its also my birthday)! 

Our all-star cast includes Alessandra Rovati (Dinner in Venice), Esti Berkowitz (Primetime Parenting), Levana Kirschenbaum (Levana Cooks), Kim Amzallag (Kosher Inspired/Mishpacha Magazine), Marlene Mamiye (The Jewish Hostess), and me- Suzannah Raff (The Kosher Shopaholic).

We will discuss the cultural differences in Jewish foods, how the Jews throughout history were influenced by the local environment, but still managed to keep a strong Jewish tradition. It’s been said that its food defines a people, we will discuss how we adapted ourselves, how the Jewish cuisine evolved and is far more than just gefilte fish, brisket and tcholent.  I hope to discuss my family’s Hungarian Jewish cooking tradition, my father’s entrepreneurial restaurants, Challah Baking and all its Blessings.

You can tune in to us at 7:30pm (Eastern Time) tonight at: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/kosherscene or you can join us at Nargila Grill ((1599 York Avenue – between E. 84 and E. 85th Street – New York 10028; Tel: 212.535.3700) for an evening of great talk and superb food.  Nargila Grill is under the hasgacha of of the O K Labs.

We are all really excited to sample the owner Michael’s mother’s Bukharian cooking.  What a great way to celebrate – great talk, great food, great friends and you! Why not come over and say hello?  Or listen in to the great discussion on-line here or over the phone or in the archives.
