Sweets, Holidays and Family Recipes - Israeli-Mediterranean Cookbook (Cook In Israel - Kosher Recipes, Mediterranean Cooking 1) Kindle Edition
- The Jerusalem Post
"Capturing the essence of a recipe along withthe essence of the author themselves is a difficult task, yet a task completedso skillfully by Orly and her photographer. Each image is bright andinviting, making me wish I had time to cook most of the recipes in this book. Vegetarians and vegans may particularly enjoy this work as there are justtwo meat recipes in the entire book and the focus on real food, wholeingredients and cooking with local produce means there are plenty of glutenfree dishes for you to sample too... This is a book that I turn to to build amenu or read for pleasure. The food tells a story and brings people together."

"Cook In Israel bears the subtitle "HomeCooking Inspiration" and that is precisely what Orly's book is all about. In awarm family-oriented way that is customary for Israelis, Ms. Ziv welcomes youinto her kitchen with open arms. ... Orly shares family favorites, holiday dishesand an expansive array of vegetarian recipes that are mainstays in MiddleEastern culture."

From the Author
In addition tosimple, flavorful recipes that anyone can make, I've also included little tipsand tricks to make cooking as easy as possible.
This is how Irecommend that you use my recipes: Try them, and then use them as a jumping offpoint to be inspired and make them your own. Switch up the vegetables or changethe spices to create your own flavors - there's no such thing as failure in thekitchen, only learning experiences. Of course baking is all about accuracy, butthere's still room to play there as well. Change plums to peaches or hazelnutsto almonds and see what happens.

This cookbook features some delicious recipes (with pictures included) of traditional Israeli/Mediterranean dishes and desserts.
Now what I absolutely loved is that they author included the Western measurements. Take for instance 10g of baking powder. In the US, that would be 1 Tbs. So no searching around on the web to find out what the conversion is!!
I also liked that these meals/desserts are pretty simple. Take the Malabi (a milk pudding). The recipe goes like this:
2 cups of milk or coconut milk
5 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 Tbsp rose water
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup sugar
Chopped almonds, pistachios and/or strawberry syrup
Put 1/2 cup of milk in a bowl with the cornstarch and rose water and mix until you have a smooth, even mixture
Put the cream, sugar and remaining 1 1/2 cups milk in a pot and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, add cornstarch mixture and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
Pour into serving bowls and cool to room temperature. Transfer to the fridge to chill for 4 hours, or overnight.
Drizzle with strawberry syrup and sprinkle with nuts just before serving.
Tip: To make the recipe parve and vegan, replace the milk with coconut milk.
See, even someone who rarely cooks or bakes can make that and not screw it up!!!

Disclaimer: I received Sweets, Holidays and Family Recipes-Israeli-Mediterranean Cookbook from eBookPro for free for my honest review. All opinions stated in this review are mine and mine alone.
- Soufganiyot - These are doughnuts that are perfect for Hanukkah. The adjustment I made on this recipe is that I use apple butter for some of the doughnuts.
- Latkes also known as Levivot - These are very tasty. The adjustment I made is I added apple sauce as a topping for some.
- Borekas - These taste like those I would purchase from bakeries in Israel.
Three items I would have liked recipes for in this book were rugelach, matzah and challah.
This low cost book seems to have some of my favorite recipes for the items above. If a second version is made of this book, I would recommend the additions I list above.
If you crave Israeli food, this is a good book.
