    Another fantastic Ottolenghi book made even better by the poignant stories he and Sami Tamimi share about growing up in different communities in the same city. The recipes I've tried so far have all been great. This is more than just a cookbook. It's social anthropology at its best....

    I just received this magnificent book as a birthday present, and I'm loving every single page of it. These are the foods I lived on during my year in Israel. As I read along, I'm tasting every dish on the tip of my tongue. So far, I've made the Israeli salad, the shakshuka, and the chicken with cara...

    [ongoing review - 11 recipes made to date] I have a purely personal, purely artificial rule that it takes at least 10 recipes to say one has read a cookbook. [Corollary rule - any cookbook not worth making 10 recipes from has no place on your bookshelf.] The Recipes (ongoing) 1. Falafel (ta'amia fo...

In fact some of the recipes were already familiar to me and show up on the dinner table frequently, such...

    I would have purchased this book based on the cover alone (I am completely smitten with baked eggs), but after seeing so many recipes form Jerusalem a Cookbook pop up all over the blogosphere lately, I knew I wanted to try it. First of all, the book is gorgeous. From it's softly padded cover, to the...

    This book is magnificent. Jerusalem collects the recipes of Jewish, Israeli Jerusalem and those of Muslim/Christian Arab-Israeli/Palestinian Jerusalem. One chef is Jewish, the other Palestinian. The lines blur, a fact the writers acknowledge. Few of these dishes have a permanent home. Many have orig...

    When this book arrived in the post this morning, I had this incredible sense of anticipation. I opened the book, was entranced by the photos, the history of the region and the recipes themselves. I'm lost for choice in deciding which one to choose! I love cooking and I had never heard of this indivi...
