Joudie Kalla is the author of bestselling books Palestine on a Plate: Memories from My Mother’s Kitchen and Baladi: A Celebration of Food from Land and SeaWorking as a chef for over 23 years, she also runs cooking classes, catering events, regular sold-out supper clubs, hosts Palestine-themed dinners for charity, and consults on food projects.


Reem Assil is owner of Reem’s California, a nationally acclaimed restaurant, inspired by Arab street corner bakeries and the vibrant communities that surround them. Previously a community and labor organizer, Reem sits at the intersection of her three passions: food, community, and social justice; she uses food to invoke the central virtue of her Arab culture — hospitality — to build strong, resilient, and connected community.


Program features Reem Assil interviewing Joudie Kalla and videos of each chef cooking. Proceeds benefit MECA's food parcels project in Palestine and Lebanon, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
