We love food. When we travel, it is as much the local cuisine as the people or the place we look forward to. Jerusalem is a cherished new member on the cookbook shelf, which not only makes the taste buds happy, but also provides food for thought in a world full of contradictions.
Sammi Tamimi and Yotam Ottolenghi are good friends and together they share a passion for food. They also both come from Jerusalem.
Friends - the Jewish Ottolenghi and Palestinian Tamimi - write with great passion and love for their hometown: the colorful, diverse and international Jerusalem. The book is a journey into the city and its rich and varied cuisine, its flavors and aromas .
