Hummus Kawarma (Lamb) with Lemon Sauce from the 'Jerusalem' Cookbook

Kate Williams 5 comments

Hummus is the topic of many food debates in Jerusalem, and every person seems to have their own favorite preparation. Ottolenghi and Tamimi give their own tahini-rich recipe along with two variations, Musabaha (warm chickpea topping) and Kawarma (fried chopped lamb). For the most show-stopping of hummus dishes, take the extra time and prepare the Kawarma. Freshly chopped lamb neck meat is marinated in warm spices, za'atar, vinegar, mint, and parsley before it's fried in butter. More

The Mejadra recipe in Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's Jerusalem: A Cookbook is Tamimi's take on the traditional Arab comfort food combination of rice, lentils, and onions. Here, the rice and lentils are steamed together with a plethora of spices, pilaf style, before adding the pièce de résistance--a smattering of freshly fried onions. More

Roasted Butternut Squash and Red Onion with Tahini and Za'atar from 'Jerusalem' Cookbook

Kate Williams Post a comment

Butternut squash is a staple in my kitchen during fall and winter, but I never stray far from simple roasted cubes or a creamy pureed soup. But after preparing the Roasted Butternut Squash and Red Onion with Tahini and Za'atar in Jerusalem: A Cookbook, I am a total devotee of pairing winter squash with sesame. More

Fattoush from the 'Jerusalem' Cookbook

Kate Williams 3 comments

As Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi write in the introduction to Na'ama's Fattoush in Jerusalem: A Cookbook, there is no escaping chopped salads in the city. Some are simple amalgamations of tomato, cucumber, onion, and lemon vinaigrette, while others, like Arab fattoush, contain a cornucopia of vegetables mixed with leftover pita bread More

Cook the Book: 'Jerusalem: A Cookbook'

Kate Williams Closed

During a time of great conflict and sadness in Israel, Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's new book Jerusalem: A Cookbook is a breath of fresh air. Not only does the book present a rich tapestry of recipes, breathtaking photographs, and beautiful essays, but it also offers a glimpse into Jerusalem's vast diversity of peoples and the food. Both of the chef-authors were born in Jerusalem, yet they each bring distinctly different cultural experiences to the table: Ottolenghi is Jewish and Tamimi is Palestinian. Enter to win a copy of this amazing book here! More
