A Very Jewish Christmas

On Wednesday, December 22nd Zahav is hosting “A Very Jewish Christmas” complete with Chinese food and a movie.

The $50 per person dinner will include Israeli-inflected Chinese food and early 80’s movies shown on a big screen. As chef Michael Solomonov noted, “Growing up Jewish, it’s hard not to feel left out at Christmas time, so my family and I observed the tradition of many Jewish families: enjoying Chinese take-out and watching a favorite movie instead. This meal is a silly send-up of that custom, a fond ‘welcome home’ to Jewish guests, and a great way for those who celebrate Christmas to get a feel for what the day often holds for the rest of us.”

The menu will include:

  • Wonton Soup with Yemenite curry and veal dumplings
  • Lamb Egg Rolls with pine nuts, dates and amba
  • Salt & Pepper Squid with zhoug powder
  • Cold Sesame Noodles with black tehina and shrimp
  • Persian Fried Rice with smoked pork belly
  • Cashew Chicken with Moroccan flavors
  • Mushroom & Tofu Hot Pot with eggplant al ha’esh and black bean sauce
  • Top-secret Happy Ending dessert (PG-rated)
