Two chefs from Jerusalem, a Jew and a Palestinian, present recipes from their native city that are extraordinarily vivid.

This is more than a cookbook; it's an introduction to the wildly complex food cultures of Jerusalem viewed by two native sons, one Jewish, one Muslim. It's a plea for communication and cooperation, a proof that the city's inhabitants have more similarities than differences (even if they never agree on what baba ghanoush is). It's filled with photographs that are both beautiful & interesting. And it passes test one of a great cookbook - the recipes are delicious. As a vegetarian much of the book was off limits, but there is still a lot of fabulous food here for me to try, and even if I needed a few specialty ingredients like sumac & pomegranate molasses, the recipes I tried came out really well.

I've cooked a number of the recipes for a dinner party and everything came out delicious. Love the photography, the detailed touches...more than just a cookbook. Having visited Israel, Yotam & Sami deliver the real deal!

My husband and I love Mediterrean food and this book really delivers.
The receipes are actually quite easy and the dishes turn out exactly as they are supposed to.
I had to get a few extra ingredients that I normally don't keep but most of the grocery stores have them so I didn't go out of my way.

The power of great food to bridge cultures...
