MOFAD x Ace Hotel Brooklyn present The Arab Table with Reem Assil and Helen Rosner
The Arab Table for me is a place of contradiction. The table I create in my adulthood resists patriarchy and concedes to a nurturing maternal impulse. It can feel good, generous, even spiritual, to cook for others. And it can feel oppressive when it’s expected of me. – Reem Assil
In her new cookbook, Arabiyya — which translates to “Arab woman”— Reem Assil celebrates her Palestinian and Syrian roots, and the alluring aromas and flavors of Arab food. She also shares what the Arab table means to her as a female, a chef, an Arab in diaspora, and the daughter of a strong Palestinian woman.
Join Reem Assil in conversation with The New Yorker’s Helen Rosner as we celebrate the publication of Arabiyya and learn how in her quest for purpose, Reem has returned to the Arab table again and again as a place that shapes her identity.
Tickets include a cocktail and tastes of several dishes from Arabiyya.
