King Solomon’s Table with Joan Nathan


Join Historic Columbia and the History Center at USC for “King Solomon’s Table with Joan Nathan” from 2- 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3.

This special event will feature a talk by Joan Nathan, a James Beard award-winner, much-loved cookbook author, and authority on Jewish cooking across the globe. The presentation will be followed by a reception with southern Jewish recipes from one of Nathan’s 11 cookbooks. She will also be on hand to sign her most recent publication, King Solomon’s Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World.

In 2014, Historic Columbia embarked on a project now known as the Columbia Jewish Heritage Initiative (CJHI), which documents the stories of the Jewish population in South Carolina’s capital city. The initial work was to create web-based and print guided tours that provide access to the rich stories about the Jewish community in Columbia. Just over a year ago, Historic Columbia and CJHI launched a complementary blog, Kugels and Collards, which explores the relationship of Jewish and Southern cooking traditions and the stories of that intersection.
