5-Course Contemporary Argentine Tasting Event
Since its opening in 2010, Jezabel’s Café and Bakery, the creation of Executive Chef/Owner Jezabel Careaga, has developed a loyal following. Small wonder given that Eater has named Jezabel’s to its list of “The 38 Essential Restaurants in Philadelphia,” describing its dishes as “A song you can’t get out of your head.” Chef Careaga was born in Palpalá, a small town in the northwestern Argentine province of Jujuy, and moved to the U.S. in 2007, first to Miami and then to Philly, where she opened her café in Fitler Square. Now on 45th Street in expanded quarters, Jezabel’s Café offers a wide variety of amazing empanadas, from spicy beef or c hchicken to spinach to ham, cheese and tomatoes to spicy corn with basil and feta. The quiches are also noteworthy, with such options as sautéed leeks and zucchini and sautéed scallions and corn. Leave room as well for the delicious Argentinian pastries, like alfajores (shortbread cookies layered with dulce de leche) and torte de ricotta. We are excited to visit here, to taste Chef Careaga’s specialties, and to learn about the cuisine of her home country.
About the Host:
Hailing from a small town in Argentina called Palpalá, located in the Northwestern Argentine province of Jujuy, Chef Jezabel Careaga studied Tourism & Hotel Management in Cordoba before pursuing an MBA at Universidad Siglo XXI. She moved to Miami in 2007 and in less than 3 years, in June 2010, she opened the doors to her beloved Café in the beautiful Fitler Square neighborhood, where it operated until December 2018.
