Israeli celebrity chef, author and television personality Gil Hovav - visiting the area - will do a cooking demo at La Cucina, inside the Reading Terminal Market, 12th and Arch Streets, from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12.

Hovav may be the great-grandson of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the reviver of the Hebrew language; the grandson of Itamar Ben-Avi who began modern Hebrew journalism; and the son of Moshe & Drora Hovav, "founding members" of Israel's modern day public radio, but he has a lighter claim to fame:

He was a woman.

More accurately, last year he came out with the cookbook Confessions of a Kitchen Rebbetzin, in which he assumed the character of a rabbi's wife to reveal "the whole truth about everyday Israeli cooking."
