Throw-Back: Join us for a retro living room disco, with a twist

In the 1970s, Ruth Sirkis’s “Cooking With Love,” turned hospitality and cooking in Israel on its head. Join us as we celebrate it in true disco fashion. For one evening, Asif will be transformed into a 1970s living room party — complete with a mirror ball.

Culinary personality Efrat Enzel and her partner DJ Omri Smadar will host dance party with mashups of songs from then and now, plus trays of recipes from the book with contemporary riffs. Sip cocktails from legendary bartender Eddie Newman, who will offer his take on the drinks like punch and mulled wine that helped make those living room parties back in the day so memorable.
