Welcome to the new year of Cookbook Club! This year, we’re cooking from around the world, trying to tie in a holiday from that region to our cooking!
Today we’re celebrating the Jewish holidays, cooking from Jerusalem : a cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi!
We’ll have copies of the cookbook at the library or you can order a copy of the book HERE
A collection of 120 recipes exploring the flavors of Jerusalem from the New York Times bestselling author of Plenty, one of the most lauded cookbooks of 2011.
In Jerusalem, Yotam Ottolenghi re-teams with his friend (and the co-owner of his restaurants) Sami Tamimi. Together they explore the vibrant cuisine of their home city–with its diverse Muslim, Jewish, Arab, Christian, and Armenian communities.
Both men were born in Jerusalem in the same year–Tamimi on the Arab east side and Ottolenghi in the Jewish west. This cookbook offers recipes from their unique cross-cultural perspectives including Charred Baby Okra with Tomato and Preserved Lemon, Braised Lamb Meatballs with Sour Cherries, and Clementine and Almond Cake.
With five bustling restaurants in London and two stellar cookbooks, Ottolenghi is one of the most respected chefs in the world; Jerusalem is his most personal, original, and beautiful cookbook yet.
