5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. Doable. So good., October 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Jerusalem: A Cookbook (Hardcover)
This cookbook is approachable and the recipes are actually something you will make...and then make again. If you love Middle Eastern cuisine, buy this. I have made the basic Hummus...it takes some time, so be aware that you need 24 hours. It was so good. I agree with the authors that if anything is going to bring the middle east to peace..it's gotta be the hummus. The other thing I made was the Couscous with tomato and onion. Love the flavors, I will make both of these again. The great thing about the recipes are, they aren't so wild that you can't imagine making them. The ingredients are, for the most part, easy to find. The techniques are simple enough for the home cook. Falafel is next on the list.

****Edit****I would just like to say, that one of the reasons, I think, that this is so doable for a Middle Eastern cookbook, is these are the recipes that regular people make. This is what the moms and grandmas make. That's the kind of food I want to make as well, good home cooking.

Amazing !!! It's amazing !!!
======= ============

It really is very similar to the school I saw today.
The only difference is, that this school is a lot of recipes, but each recipe is concise. And the school I saw today, any recipe and a recipe, detailed at length, along with background stories.
Here's the book I saw today Jewish Jerusalem Recipes, Salads Delicacies Cookbook, From the old Jewish cuisine (The Jewish & jerusalem kosher Recipes series Book 1)
