Sabra ‘Whirled Peas’ Hummus Pop Up in NYC
Six chefs -- Esther Choi, Jet Tila, Wes Avila, Deborah VanTrece, Kwame Onwuachi and Einat Admony -- to dish hummus with innovative flavor profiles
Sabra’s Whirled Peas is a limited-time pop-up experience boldly reimagining the versatile Mediterranean dish as inspired by global culture and cuisine. Five chefs, each celebrated for sharing their heritage flavorfully through food, will collaborate with chef, cookbook author, and restauranteur Einat Admony to introduce a collection of original dishes featuring the plant-based favorite, reinterpreted. Presented by Sabra®, ‘Whirled Peas’ will be open to the public October 11-November 24 with reservations available through the Resy app and on Resy.com.
A recent study conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with Sabra examined how Americans look at culture and food, revealing Americans feel food is a true unifier. Among respondents, 84% indicate food is a welcoming and approachable way to share cultures with others and 88% cite food and recipes as preferred ways to first experience new cultures.
To create the unique pop-up experience, Sabra takes over and transforms Kish-Kash, a West Village based restaurant owned by Chef Admony whose new book “Shuk” was released last month.
