Prolific is the word that comes to mind when I think about cookbooks these days. There are hundreds lining the shelves of bookstores or on your computer screen--depending on how you choose to do your shopping. Either way there are a lot of cookbooks to be had, and with new ones published on a regular basis, it can be hard to know which are actually worth purchasing.
Cookbooks often focus on the cuisine of an entire country, so choosing to focus on the food of a specific city is a unique and brilliant idea. Cities each have their own distinctive food culture which plays a role in defining and reflecting its character, and this cookbook succeeds in vividly capturing the food culture of Jerusalem. Furthermore, the fact that Yotam Ottolenghi grew up in the Jewish west of the city and Sami Tamimi grew up in the Muslim east also lends a broad perspective to the recipes and information presented to readers.
Reading the cookbook is just as enjoyable as cooking from it, and as of late it has a place of pride on my nightstand. Each recipe is preceded by head notes that discuss a dish's origins or offer suggestions related to its preparation. Interspersed throughout the cookbook are short blurbs about specific dishes, colorful stories, or background on specific ingredients such as eggplant. They also share personal stories, my favorite of which, involves playing as children in the occoasional Jerusalem snow fall.
I tasted quite a few of the dishes from this cookbook because I chose to use this book for the first meeting of the cookbook club my friends and I started. Some of the dishes that graced the table that night included a baby spinach salad with dates and almonds, Swiss chard fritters, hummus topped with lamb, lamb stuffed quince with pomegranate and cilantro, chicken with caramelized onion and cardamom rice, and cardamom rice pudding with pistachios and rose water. (They were all delicious!) The recipe I made is a simple roasted beet dip that makes a beautiful dish to serve as an appetizer or part of mezes. The dip itself is earthy and sweet with the goat cheese adding a little tang; the almonds and green onions add some welcome texture. All you need alongside this dish is some fresh pita to scoop it up, and just like many of the recipes in Jerusalem, the flavors are rich and extraordinarily vibrant.
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 fantasy where land and culture meld instead of diverging, and communities in conflict share a palate, traditions, and a love for the foods of a rich, storied, unified city.\" --Tamar Adler, author of An Everlasting Meal \"Jerusalem is a beautiful and necessary book. I'm going to need three copies: one for the bookshelf, one to display on the coffee table, and one to be left open on the kitchen counter. (Not to mention the few dozen copies to give as gifts.)\" --Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Eating Animals \"Once more we are fortunate to receive from Yotam Ottolenghi a book that is filled with passion, color, and truly vibrant and fresh ideas. I am smitten and grateful!\" --Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone \"The book weaves in the wonderful mixture of countless cultures and historical events that have influenced the city's cuisine for centuries...I love all the snippets of childhood memories and mini history lessons sprinkled over the pages of Jerusalem, amongst 120 approachable recipes - both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, but all oh so enticing.\" --Marissa Lippert, nourish-nyc.com \"The book is gorgeous, perfect to work your way through one recipe at a time.\"--Food52 \"These vibrant recipes are spice-heavy, vegetable-forward, and consistently delicious.\"--Bon Appetit, September 2012 \"It's a cookbook that's not only timely but also deeply personal. And seen through the eyes of two expats (both men live and work in England)--one Jewish, the other Palestinian--you're exposed not only to the simplicity of flavors but also to the complexities of food as politics. That food can be this charged might be surprising for some, but that it's so delicious is undeniable.\"--Epicurious.com \"Written as homage to the city that defines the authors, this cookbook offers snapshots of the multicultural, multiflavored city that is Jerusalem. Realizing the difficulties of trying to capture the diversity of a city that has been described as \"the center of the universe\" Ottolenghi and Tamimi only promise \"a glimpse into [the] hidden treasure\" of a city constructed upon centuries of fusion, or the lack thereof, of hundreds of cultures being mashed together in such a small space. Not wanting to offend the inhabitants of an already disputed territory, the authors try to cut a cross-section of recipes and ingredients native to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. From Tunisia (shakshuka) to Turkey (Swiss chard fritters) and Iran (broad bean kuku) to Lebanon (the delicious hummus kawarma), this cookbook promises to excite the taste buds of anyone interested in Middle Eastern cuisine. Not happy with just presenting the flavors and textures of the city, the authors try to encapsulate the history and spirit of the city, too. With multiple introductions at its front, explanations of different spices and ingredients, and anecdotal stories peppered throughout, this book offers not only taste but education as well.\"--Publisher's Weekly, 7/16/12
