Book Overview

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 and Sami Tamimi explore the vibrant cuisine of their home city--with its diverse Muslim, Jewish, and Christian communities. Both men were born in Jerusalem in the same year--Tamimi on the Arab east side and Ottolenghi in the Jewish west. This stunning cookbook offers 120 recipes from their unique cross-cultural perspective, from inventive vegetable dishes to sweet, rich desserts. With five bustling restaurants in London and two stellar cookbooks, Ottolenghi is one of the most respected chefs in the world; in Jerusalem, he and Tamimi have collaborated to produce their most personal cookbook yet.

   Tasty, yummy, delicious...
Above all, I love the food and have enjoyed every recipe that I have tried. This is a fabulous present for the right person. I love the spices and the food so this is the perfect cookbook, even the simplest recipes are on my favorites list, Melissa.
Yes, I have Plenty of love it, but this cookbook has even more because it's not limited by vegetarian food. I made several salads, the chicken and rice, and they were totally successful. Some of the spices are not typically things I'd have and sometimes I've decided to leave it out if its a tiny amount and still the dish is delicious. The book itself is beautifully put together, Simon said. The photos are so good, Mr. Caramore said. Yes, I do. And the stories and history make it seem like a coffee-table book.
A great exploration of the tastes of Jerusalem. However, one can find something relatively simple or complex as time and ingredient availability allow.
   Easily the best cookbook I have ever owned
The recipes are great. After traveling to Israel, I needed a way to have those amazing flavors in my own kitchen.
   I feel like I am in another country
I absolutely love this book. I have many cookbooks, but this is one of the best. Easy to follow, the pictures are great, and the best of all the food I have prepared, Mr. D'Antonio said. I really feel that I have spent the summer in Jerusalem - the food is so fresh, herby and varied, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Favorite recipes have to be the turkey and zucchini burgers and the basmati and wild rice with chickpeas. Even living in the mid west, I have been able to get most of the ingredients, but I will struggle with the fish dishes. I love that there are a lot of vegetarian recipes - I have been trying to cut back on meat and this book has a great balance of veggie and non-veggie recipes, Roettin said. Buy Cassettes from the Beatles' "Revolver" album.
   Easy and delicious food, I highly recommend this book!
I have never met a book like this. It's just that I have it to my mum for Mother's Day and she couldn't be more pleased with it. Easy to follow, the six-pack contains all the necessary instructions to make delicious meals.
   Update: Still an amazing cookbook
A picture is worth a thousand words, McCartney said. I could easily say a thousand words about this inappropriate image in a cookbook, Ballantine said. It's gross, it's nasty, and I don't blame anybody.
   A must have amazing book!
This is by far the most amazing book I have ever read. A collaboration between a Jew and an Arab, each contributing their best recipes that originated or just served in Jerusalem. Colourful pictures of the food and people of different cultures.
   It's giving me some ideas on how to season fresh ...
I think I could get through my bottle of sumac and za'atar by the end of the year!
   Outcomes are good process is more cumbersome than necessary.
The recipes are often tasty and interesting, McBride said. It's a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Only a handful of the essential oils are readily available. The directions are written in paragraph form rather than in numbered steps. It can be daunting for the first time cook. I have to keep referring back to the directions and keep searching for the next step, Mr. Dhaliwal said. I am not an expert cook and do not find this issue with many other cookbooks. Overall, this irritation is relatively common and usually worth the effort, Dr. Goin added.
