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.
About the Author
Yotam Ottolenghi arrived in the UK from his native Israel in 1997 and set out on a new career in food, after having completed an MA in Comparative Literature whilst working as a journalist in Tel Aviv.
In London he attended The Cordon Bleu after which he worked as a pastry chef in various establishments. In 2002, Yotam and his partners set up Ottolenghi, a unique food shop offering a wide range of freshly made savory dishes, baked products and patisserie items. There are now four Ottolenghi's, as well as NOPI, a brasserie style restaurant in Soho, London.
Since 2006 Ottolenghi has written a column in The Guardian's Weekend Saturday magazine. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling books Plenty, Jerusalem, and Ottolenghi.
SAMI TAMIMI is a partner and head chef at Ottolenghi and coauthor of Ottolenghi: The Cookbook.
Winner, IACP Awards 2013- Cookbook of the Year Winner, IACP Awards 2013- International“The best cookbooks are the ones with a strong sense of place—and this is one of them. Yotam and Sami thoughtfully explore the way a tapestry of cuisines comes together into the vibrant, bold, and unique foodscape of Jerusalem. It’s a volume that makes you want to cook. It makes you want to eat. And it makes you want to travel.” —Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day “Oh, my goodness, book my flight right now! The passion, the history, the photography, and oh, the food. -I didn’t think it was possible, but Ottolenghi has outdone himself with Jerusalem.” —Suzanne Goin, author of Sunday Suppers at Lucques “Jerusalem is a city of mosaics. Everybody takes and leaves their own impression. Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi have beautifully and lovingly captured their corner of the city and its foods; Jerusalem is infused with Middle Eastern flavor and Plenty’s gorgeous, rustic sensibilities.” —Joan Nathan, author of The Foods of Israel Today “People say that food, like soccer, erases differences—that sharing salt creates a bond. In Jerusalem, Sami and Yotam, brought up on opposite sides of the same city, imagine a cuisine fed by a single wellspring. This book is not just a beautiful story of the Palestinian and Israeli dishes with which the authors each grew up, but a covenant of salt in which spiced chickpeas, fried rissoles, mint tea, and pomegranates represent a culinary fant
