DECEMBER 9 | 5 PM
REGISTER | BUY THE BOOK
Join us for an online conversation with Amy Zitelman, author of The Tahini Table, as well as CEO and cofounder of woman-owned Soom Foods, the leading purveyor of tahini and tahini products in the American market. In The Tahini Table: Go Beyond Hummus with 100 Recipes for Every Meal, tahini is introduced to home cooks as a new pantry staple that can be used in recipes from dips to desserts.
Tahini, made from pressed roasted sesame seeds, is a healthy, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and low-sugar superfood rich in Omega fatty acids, protein, and calcium. Although tahini's historical roots are in the Middle East, Zitelman aims to stretch the culinary borders of tahini outside of traditional Middle-Eastern fare. The Tahini Table contains 100 recipes that showcase tahini's wide range of uses. Zitelman writes with the home cook in mind, incorporating tahini into everyday cooking in delicious and unexpected ways.
Amy Zitelman is CEO of Philadelphia-based Soom Foods, which she cofounded in 2013. Soom was named the best tahini according to industry experts by New York magazine in 2019, and has been featured in The New York Times, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, and other publications. She was named to Forbes magazine's "30 Under 30" class of 2018.
