Ta'im Detroit

Ta'im Detroit

This event is now sold out.

We're exploring how immigration from all around the world has impacted Israeli cuisine through a 10-course meal (with wine pairings)! While food is the heart of this event, this dinner is about celebrating culture, history, peoplehood and the reality that Israeli cuisine is a collective (and continuously evolving) creation.

This meal is being thoughtfully sourced with local ingredients, is pescatarian (fish, eggs and cheese included - but no meat!) and prepared kosher style.

Proudly presented by Flavors of Coexistence with support from OneTable, The Well, and NEXTGen Detroit

Flavors of Coexistence is a bridge-building dining initiative that uses multisensory learning, principles of gastrodiplomacy, and food storytelling to enhance participants' understanding of shared culture between diverse communities living in the same region.

About Chef Aliza Grayevsky: Aliza Grayevsky is an eighth generation Jerusalemite. Raised in the kitchens of Jerusalem, she grew up cooking and eating everything the city's streets and markets had to offer. Growing up in Jerusalem makes her intimately familiar with Jerusalem's culinary collision of flavors and cultures. It is that "best of all worlds" touch that Aliza brings to her cooking.
