Week 3 Update
Whoop Whoop! We’re chugging right along in our crowdfunding campaign. Week 3 was another week of successes all around. We’re up to 20% of our goal. Like always we’d like to start by humbly thanking all of our backers, everyone who’s shared the campaign and talked about our mission, as well as everyone who’s participated in our events. You can eat tahini alone, but it’s always better to TahiniTogether!
We started the week off with an exciting event hosted by the LA Kitchen! The Power of Food event: “Seed to Plate: Middle Easterners Talk Tahini” was a huge success! Ala Tamam from Karawan Tahini educated attendees about the process of making tahini and its history and Chef Amelia Saltsman shared a few delicious ways to use tahini in everyday foods.
On Monday, two powerhouses joined forces for an entertaining and educational live cooking show. Ceci teamed up with Lisa Torres of Delicious Table for a conversation about tahini that was live streamed across our social media! We had a great time talking tahini with Lisa, and joking about eating tahini to fit into a bikini! The chemistry was great and the food was even better! If you missed it don’t worry you can watch it here.
