This January, join James Beard Award-winning Chef Alon Shaya to prepare two recipes featuring his signature modern Israeli flavors and cooking style. Alon will demonstrate step-by-step how to make his Moroccan Carrot Salad and Shakshouka. Writer and recipe developer Rémy Robert will join Alon virtually to moderate the evening. Alon and Rémy will share their favorite tips for cooking at home and Cardmembers will have the opportunity to ask questions during a live Q&A (questions may be limited based on timing).

Cardmembers will receive a gift box containing a signed copy of Alon Shaya’s book Shaya: An Odyssey of Food, My Journey Back to Israel, a Saba tote bag and select key ingredients to help you cook along at home, including Harissa for the Moroccan Carrot Salad and Zhoug for the Shakshouka.

Alon Shaya is passionate about food – he loves cooking it, being around it, learning about it, and teaching others about it. He first learned to cook from his mother and grandmother in Philadelphia, where he was raised. Alon has received many accolades, including five James Beard Award nominations and winner of “Best Chef, South" in 2015. In 2017, Alon and his wife Emily formed Pomegranate Hospitality to create a space where meaningful, lasting relationships are created, community engagement prospers, and cultural differences are celebrated. Alon and Pomegranate Hospitality opened two restaurants, Safta in Denver and Saba in New Orleans. Alon’s debut cookbook Shaya: An Odyssey of Food, My Journey Back to Israel – part memoir and part cookbook – details his deeply personal journey of survival and discovery, exploring the evolution of a cuisine and the transformative power and magic of food and cooking.

Rémy Robert collaborated with Alon on recipe development for Shaya: An Odyssey of Food, My Journey Back to Israel. Rémy has collaborated on book projects with Mark Bittman, Cortney Burns, Isaac Toups, Aarón Sánchez, and Food52. She melds home cook sensibilities with “cheffy aspirations,” translating a wide range of ideas into recipes and techniques that are easily replicable in any kitchen. She is also a founding team member of the New Orleans Culinary & Hospitality Institute, where her work centers around community development.
