Around the Table in Bethlehem – Join Me December 3rd

Around the Table in Bethlehem – Join Me December 3rd

Today we celebrated the culmination of our liturgical year with the Solemnity of Christ the King, and next Sunday we enter into the holy and joy-filled season of Advent.

In preparation for Advent, I have been invited to speak at my parish, St. Peter Catholic Church in Covington on December 3, 2015. Doors open at 6:30. My Advent presentation will take place within the context of a shared meal. Appropriate, huh?

I will be preparing a number of Middle Eastern dishes from my book Around the Table with The Catholic Foodie: Middle Eastern Cuisine. Space is limited. Please make reservations in advance. There is no charge, but a collection will be taken to cover expenses.

Contact information to make reservations can be found in the press release included below:
