JERUSALEM – The Inbal Jerusalem Hotel is set to share its legendary and eclectic holiday recipes with the world, in the first-ever live Passover cooking broadcast, hosted by award-winning Executive Chef Nir Elkayam. The unprecedented cooking session will be broadcasted live from the Inbal’s kitchen on Tuesday, March 24 at 18.00 IST, with people around the world able tune in and ask questions via a live chat on the following link:

Some of the special creations that Elkayam will share recipes and techniques for include an adaptation of the American-style corned beef sandwich, which uses a kosher for Passover “flatbread” and green and red salsa options instead of classic mustard. An original line-up also includes an array of eccentric knaidlach (matza ball) soup selections that will completely change opinions of the traditionally bland dish, with fired onion and parsley, Moroccon spicy and sweet chocolate soup choices. Last year’s favorite, the lox and cream cheese bagel, complete with a hard crust and fluffy inside also makes this year’s menu, which is rounded off with a delicious apple crumble dessert created by the hotel’s talented pastry chef, Doron Gruner. These creations add to the most diverse Passover menu ever at the Inbal, with a remarkably wide selection of dishes.

With the groundbreaking live cooking session, the Inbal hopes to share its gastronomic expertise to viewers around the world and allow them to enjoy five-star Passover dishes from the comfort of their own home.

Elkayam brought his renowned culinary talents to the hotel when he took charge of the Inbal’s kitchen in September last year. Speaking ahead of his live cooking session he said:

I’m delighted to be sharing my unique Passover recipes with people around the world to allow them to enjoy their American and traditional Jewish classics as part of their Seder night and throughout the duration of Passover.”

As the Inbal Jerusalem Hotel readies itself for a busy Passover period, guests will be able to indulge themselves in the creative menu on offer and enjoy the most gourmet dining experience possible.

Food is a central component to the Inbal providing guests with a first-rate experience at the hotel,” said Inbal Jerusalem Hotel Vice President of Sales and Marketing Alex Herman. “The hotel prides itself on giving its guests the most premium lodging possible and with this sophisticated and innovative menu, Passover is no exception.”

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
