Dorchester Brewing Co. teams with chef Avi Shemtov of Chubby Chickpea food truck fame to launch America’s first brewery taproom shakshuka brunch in the winter of 2018.
The brunch series kicks off on Sunday, Jan. 7, noon to 3 p.m., and will take place at the same time each Sunday this winter in the heart of Boston at Dorchester Brewing Co.
Shakshuka is a rich, savory Israeli stew of tomatoes, spices and sunny poached eggs that’s enjoying an ascendant moment right now with the rise of modern Middle Eastern cuisine across the United States. Shemtov was among the very first chefs in Greater Boston to serve shakshuka and it pairs deliciously well with craft-brewed local beer on those lazy winter Sundays.
Shakshuka will serve as the centerpiece of Chubby Chickpea’s brunch menu, which will also feature (among other dishes):
- Braised lamb belly hash with smoked potatoes and truffle-roasted garlic
- Fried challah French toast stuffed with prickly pear and labneh cheese
- Ful, a stewed fava bean spread with hard-boiled eggs and sumac-roasted onions
