    Yum. I made about 7 or 8 different recipes but so many looked mouthwatering. The hummus is divine, as is the recipe for chickpeas (similar to arbis, but seasoned differently). The mejadra was excellent, even though I did not follow the recipe exactly; the seasoning was perfect. Of c...

    Delicious recipes, and beautiful photographs of the food of Jerusalem and its cultural contexts. So far, I've made the butternut squash "hummus," the seared eggplant and mint dip with pomegranate, and the poached pears. Everything I've made so far has been delicious. My only complaint ...

    This book is absolutely gorgeous. I got it today, started reading through it, and couldn't stop. There are many entrancing photographs of the dishes, as well as scenes from the incredible diversity that underlies Jerusalem. The pictures are not are not Martha-Stewart perfect, but earth...

    Full disclosure, I have yet to make one of these recipes. I have perused the entire book, however, and have read much of non-recipe instruction text. The photos are beautiful, the descriptions are nicely detailed, and a lot of cultural background is given, which I especially enjoyed. S...

    I give the book five stars because it is simiply an amazing cook book. Full of pictures and history of jerusalme. As someone who lives in northern Ohio with all major cities that might have any access to any of the foods used in the cookbook. It was hard to find anything that I could p...

    Jerusalem is a work of art and I feel overwhelmed every time I look at it again. Each description of the food is rich and full of detail, the pictures so lush and decadent. I need someone to plan a dinner party, STAT. ...

    Gorgeous pictures, not all of which relate to food. You can almost smell and feel the atmosphere of the city of Jerusalem. Some of the recipes have ingredients that are not readily available, but overall they are do-able and the ones I've tried are satisfying. The recipes reflect a div...

    Fantastic! The recipes are great and the history of the city and area of Palestine and Israel is fascinating and informative. I've made a few of the dishes already with great success - the pureed beets with yogurt & za'atar, roasted cauliflower & hazelnut salad, parsley and bar...

    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 permanen...

    This is the kind of cookbook I could reach for again and again. There is plenty to read in relation to the food, environment and culture as well as ample recipes that I can use on a weekly basis. In fact some of the recipes were already familiar to me and show up on the dinner table fr...

    A really great cookbook but some of the recipes are pretty tricky and take a while.... worth trying though as they are delicious! The recipe notes and other pages of background information are really interesting too. ...

    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 chi...

    PROS: The cover of the book is representative of how the pictures look throughout the book. I love a cookbook with photos. The dishes were hearty and felt wholesome. The flavors were great. The recipes were easy to follow. CONS: Make sure you look and see how long the recipes take t...

    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 pa...

    This is another amazing cookbook from the founders of the Ottolenghi chain of restaurants in London. Yotam Ottolenghi is an Israeli Jew of Italian and German heritage, Sami Tamimi is an Israeli Arab. They were both born and raised in Jerusalem - Ottolenghi in Jewish West Jerusalem an...

    Overall our What's Cooking group really enjoyed this book. Our quibbles include...inconsistencies with measurements (combination of weight, measurement and description - we prefer weight and measurement), the font makes discerning between "3" and "5" very difficult, and assuming that r...

    In lieu of a proper review, I just wanted to point out that I have never previously considered myself a cook at all. This book makes me want to cook. Why? Well that's obviously because the dishes are so amazingly delicious. I lived in Israel for some seven years during the 1990s and...

    [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) ...

    The recipes I tried were all great. That being said, some of them could have been written slightly better and I despise when cookbooks don't have pictures of the finished product. However, I have saved and will continue to make a few of these recipes again and again, so, therefore, a w...

    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...

    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 he...

    What a beautiful cook book. I've staring at it the book shop for ages then found it at the library. The stories behind each recipe make this a pleasure to read not simply cook from. ...

    I cook a lot, and this book is a perfect example of why I still buy cookbooks while everything is within googling range. Beautiful pictures, engaging short stories, amazing recipes combining Jewish and Arabic traditions - so you can see and almost feel the East European, Tunisian, Germ...
