Cookbook author Joan Nathan stopping by C of C for special Sunday talk

On Sunday January 16th, come meet and hear Jewish cookbook author Joan Nathan talk about her travels in the College of Charleston's Stern Center Ballroom. This event is free and open to the public.

Joan Nathan takes us into kitchens in Paris, Alsace, and the Loire Valley; she visits the bustling Belleville market in Little Tunis in Paris; she breaks bread around the observation of Shabbat and the celebration of special holidays.

Now she gives us the fruits of her search for Jewish cooking in France, kosher recipes and the often moving stories behind them, interlaced with the tumultuous two-thousand-year history of the Jewish presence in France.

Joan Nathan was born in Providence, Rhode Island and is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Harvard University. Nathan was also the executive producer and host of Jewish Cooking in America with Joan Nathan, a PBS series based on her cookbook, Jewish Cooking in America. She has written a total of ten cookbooks, winning numerous awards for them. Nathan, the mother of three grown children, lives in Washington, D.C. and in Martha’s Vineyard with her husband, Allan Gerson.
