Reem Kassis was born in Jerusalem to a Palestinian family revered for its cooks. Growing up, she spent days in her grandmothers’, mother’s, and aunts’ kitchens observing and soaking up everything there was to know about Palestinian cooking. A graduate of The Wharton School and the LSE, Reem is a social psychologist and business consultant by training. At heart, however, she is a cook and a writer. Today she is using the power of food, family, and storytelling to preserve the rich culinary traditions of Palestinians and to share them with the world. She currently resides in Philadelphia with her husband and two daughters. Her first book The Palestinian Table was named one of NPR’s best books of 2017 and has been featured in The New York Times, New York Magazine, Saveur, food52, Travel + Lesiure, and Departures. On March 12th Reem will take us through her culinary journey with a memorable multi course meal. This is a unique dinner you won't want to miss!

Do you know how many rules are involved in labelling a bottle of wine "Chianti," or "Valpolicella"? A lot! The Italian DOC system has been viewed by some winemakers as more trouble than it's worth - and some rules are meant to be broken! This class will focus on the renegade winemakers that decided to leave behind the strict labelling laws of the DOC to make the wines they truly want to make. Join us for an afternoon of wine tasting and learning, while enjoying a multi-course meal prepared by our chefs in our private dining room. Let's drink to these rebels without a cause! *Dietary restrictions, allergies, and food preferences cannot be accommodated.
