Beidth al Tbeet: Deconstructing the political history of an Iraqi Jewish meal

December 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In this workshop, siblings Sam and Annabel Rabiyah, will uplift stories of cultural displacement, untold political memory, and anti-Zionist resistance through an Iraqi-Jewish lens. The workshop will lead participants through an interactive cooking demonstration for Beidth al Tbeet (“eggs overnight”), a dish traditionally served in Iraq for Shabbat brunch. Woven into the cooking demonstration will be a conversation of the political and cultural history of the dish, and what it means for this Iraqi meal to have been co-opted and rebranded as Israeli fast food. Participants are invited to cook alongside the presenters; you will receive a list of ingredients after registering. There will be time for Q&A and open discussion at the end.
