Tasting Jerusalem

Tasting JerusalemWelcome to Tasting Jerusalem, a virtual cooking group exploring the unique flavor profile and recipes of Middle Eastern cuisine through the lens of Jerusalem: A Cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, published by Ten Speed Press.

Sarene Wallace (aka @FringeFood) and I will pick a different ingredient or technique along with recipes each month as we collectively cook our way through the book and learn from each participant’s implementation of the recipe and ingredients.

We’ll announce each month’s ingredients and recipes in a blog post here on OMG! Yummy as well as on our Facebook page and on Twitter under the hashtag #TastingJrslm.

All levels of cooks are welcome from novice to chefs – the only requirement is an interest in the cookbook and the cuisine it encompasses! So join in every month or as you can while we explore the vibrant flavors of Jerusalem.

      Thought you’d pick up on that :-) We should make this a destination for our FHS reunion trip one of these times.

    I agree a weekend without kids is to be savored! What a fantastic trip and very tempting ideas for our next trip north!

      Thanks Arpita – we really packed a lot in – it felt so light to travel with only adults. And what an amazing city of food and drink. Wow!

    I am SOOOO impressed with the amount of food you were able to consume in a short trip. We could travel together anytime!

      I think we need to get CCN to send us both together on a press trip, right?

      It was Marye. Thanks for stopping by. Glad to provide virtual travel inspiration. I often do the same reading blogs or watching House Hunters International. Daydreaming for the next trip…
