As a child, cookbook author Adeena Sussman always looked forward to the traditional Shabbat dinners that fed her soul. But in her own kitchen, she feeds it by mixing things up — and in her latest book, Shabbat: Recipes and Rituals from My Table to Yours, she shows you how.  

Add some figs and pomegranate to your brisket. Roast kohlrabi instead of potatoes. Brighten up your table with sweet-and-tart eggplant salad, serve up homemade tomato jam to slather onto your challah and end your glorious dinner with a showstopping lemon black-sesame bundt cake.  

Woven throughout the recipes is a rich portrait of Shabbat in Adeena’s adopted home, Israel, where Shabbat is practically a national holiday. Taking us inside the kitchens and traditions of local cooks who have shared their most beloved recipes, Shabbat brings Sussman’s adopted home country with transporting, slice-of-life storytelling. Deeply personal and brimming with life, Shabbat inspires us all to delight in the weekly magic of Shabbat. Now more than ever, Shabbat cooking is what we all need. 

Joining Adeena onstage for this conversation is podcast host and creator Guy Raz.
