Chef Joel Gamoran: SJCC 50th Anniversary Celebration Brunch, Banter, and (Cook)Books

Sunday, September 15 | 10:30 am
SJCC Mercer Island
Tickets: $100 (includes brunch and signed book)

For 70 years (50 on Mercer Island), the Stroum Jewish Community Center of Greater Seattle has been a place to form friendships, celebrate tradition, and build community. Celebrate this momentous milestone at our Anniversary Celebration Brunch featuring Early Childhood School graduate and Sur La Table’s National Chef Joel Gamoran.

Chef Gamoran wants you to love what you eat without wasting food. Host of the hit A&E show Scraps, Gamoran will show us how to make vibrantly delicious food from his trailblazing cookbook, Cooking Scrappy, that reshapes the way we look at ingredients in our kitchens and world. Raised in Seattle and trained at The Culinary Institute of America, Joel’s embrace of the “scrappy attitude” also embodies the Jewish value of not wasting. We are thrilled to welcome Joel back to Seattle and back to the J for our 50th anniversary and a celebration brunch of his wonderful dishes preceded by onstage banter and signed books for everyone attending.

In support of SJCC’s 50th anniversary, Joel is donating a private cooking class for seven lucky people that will take place in his new test kitchen.

National Chef + Trailblazing Cookbook Author: Joel Gamoran

“In Cooking Scrappy, many recipes … remind me of my mother and aunts’ cooking when I was a child. … Joel teaches you how to save money and respect ingredients while creating wonderful dishes!” — Jacques Pépin, author and host of “Jacques Pépin: Fast Food My Way” and “Jacques Pépin: The Art of the Craft”
 
“Cooking Scrappy is one of the best cookbooks I’ve read in years. Gamoran is an ingenious chef with an exuberant voice who draws you into the kitchen. This book’s recipes and underlying message couldn’t be more timely.”— Michael Ruhlman, author of “The French Laundry Cookbook,” “Ratio,” and “Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America” 
  
Did you know that 40% of the food in the United States is wasted (not to mention that the United States has more food waste than any other nation on Earth!) and 20% of the food we buy never gets eaten? Chef Joel Gamoran wants you to love what you eat without wasting food. The National Chef of Sur La Table and host of the hit A&E show Scraps will show us how to make vibrantly delicious food from his trailblazing cookbook, Cooking Scrappy, that reshapes the way we look at ingredients in our kitchens and world. Raised in Seattle (yes, he graduated from SJCC’s Early Childhood School) and trained at The Culinary Institute of America, Joel’s embrace of the “scrappy attitude” also embodies the Jewish value of not wasting. We are thrilled to welcome Joel back to Seattle and back to the J for our 50th anniversary and a celebration brunch of his wonderful dishes preceded by onstage banter and signed books for everyone attending. 

In support of SJCC’s 50th anniversary, Joel is donating a private cooking class in the new test kitchen he is building for seven lucky people.
