jerusalem: a cookbook

I constantly browse 101 cookbooks, by Heidi Swanson. Her recipes are always fresh with a nod to global influences. And this morning while browsing for recipes, I stumbled upon a post she did about the cookbook Jerusalem. I've seen this cookbook before and never picked it up because I had no clue what Jerusalem-eque food is about. But, i'm heading out the door to buy it now, because Heidi posted a delicious looking Fattoush recipe that has my mouth watering.
 
Fattoush is basically the best kind of  salad because it incorporates a lot of naan or pita. The recipe is a bit more involved than most salads, but it looks absolutely worth it. You can find the recipe here.

  Nothing is better than a cookbook with a lot of beautiful photos.

  4. I borrowed "Jerusalem" from the library, and it's a WONDERFUL cookbook. So much so that I bought my own copy. :) I'm looking forward to trying his recipe for Shakshouka. Mmmm......("Plenty" is the other one by Ottolenghi - also fantastic.)

  5. It's one of the best cookbooks I've come across in a long, long time. My friend Beth and I loved it so much we created Tasting Jerusalem, a virtual cooking community that explores Middle Eastern cuisine through the lens of the Jerusalem cookbook. We invite you to join us! It's on Tasting Jerusalem on Facebook, Pinterest and Google+. On twitter, we use the hashtag #tastingjrslm.
