Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking
Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking By Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook. Co-owners and chefs of Philadelphia's acclaimed Zahav restaurant, Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook collaborate for this bold and beautiful vision of Isreali cooking. Through impactful Israeli ingredients, Solomonov has amassed a tour de force of bright and flavorful vegetables, delicate fish, bold, grilled meats and a variety of tahini-driven delectables. Over 165 recipes are included in 9 chapters that range from Tehina and Saltim (salads) to Soups, Rice and Kebabs. Recipes are typically scaled for 4-6 in a standard ingredients/method format and all look ridiculously appetizing. Focused information on specific ingredients such as chickpeas, pommegranate seeds, molasses, etc... are peppered throughout the chapters along with excellent photography. Zahav is an absolute treasure trove of great flavors and thoughtful recipes for anyone who truly loves food. The selections champion ingredients from The Middle East to South Eastern Pennsylvania and challenge traditional notions of what Israeli food is. Highly recommended for vegetarians and omnivores!
