“There is no greater host than my dear friend Adeena Sussman. Shabbat is a coveted invitation to Adeena's Tel Aviv kitchen, where out of her passion for community comes divine culinary rituals.” -Michael Solomonov
Shabbat—the traditional Jewish day of rest— is a treasured time when family and friends come together to relax, unwind, and revel in one another’s company during open-ended, tantalizing meals. Shabbat has been practiced all over the world and throughout history. In author Adeena Sussman’s home, then and now, the Shabbat table is a centering force, a nourishing place where one and all are welcome. It’s an opportunity every week to feed the soul.
Because tradition dictates that the Sabbath is reserved for downtime, Shabbat cooking is all about smart techniques and sound prep. In Shabbat: Recipes and Rituals from My Table to Yours, Sussman instructs on the smartest ways to prepare crowd-pleasers that require little hands-on attention. And with recipes like like Fig & Pomegranate Brisket, Bubbe’s Extra-Crispy Potato Kugel, and bright salads like Moroccan Carrot Salad, Roasted Kohlrabi, Cherry & Feta Salad,and Sweet & Tart Eggplant Salad there is alot you'll want to learn! With staples like Amba(pickled mango spread), Tomato Jam, and Schug-a-churri (a blend of Yemenite and South American condiments) on hand, it’s easy to punch up flavor and find something delectable to slather on challah. And from the showstopping Lemon Black-Sesame Bundt Cake to the rich comfort of Vegan Rice Pudding, there’s always something special for dessert.
Woven throughout the recipes is a rich portrait of Shabbat in Israel, where it is practically a national holiday. Taking us inside the kitchens and traditions of local cooks who have shared their most beloved recipes, Shabbat brings to life Sussman’s adopted home country with transporting, slice-of-life storytelling. Deeply personal and brimming with life, Shabbat inspires us all to embrace the delights of Shabbat. Now more than ever, Shabbat cooking is what we all need.
