Chef: Nini Rostoker-Shipman (my mom!)
Chef: The special 2020 Holiday Limited Edition featured Chef is Nini Rostoker-Shipman (my mom!). Raised in Canada by first generation French-Jewish immigrants, Nini learned at a young age, what ingredients went well together. Her parents cooked traditional food from France, with an experimental flare, and in their later years avidly salmon fished, and tended a large farm. Nini is a master of impromptu feasts, inclusive gatherings, and improv in the kitchen. Her cooking is eclectic, creative, experimental, and highly intuitive - often combining Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Asian, and local flavors. I truly learned everything I know about cooking, hosting, and creativity from her!
Charity: Based on the mother-daughter connection, we have chosen to give net proceeds from this edition's sales to Downtown Women’s Center – the only organizationin LA, focused on serving and empowering homelessness and formerly homelesswomen.
Hummus Flavor: Rosemary Pomegranate Spice - Tart pomegranate with hints of cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg & orange. Infused with rosemary for savory balance & topped with Persian barberries. A true holiday hit list treat.
