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.

    This looks just lovely! I look forward to making it while blueberries and peaches are fresh at the farmer’s market. Thanks Beth!

      And when they are no longer in season, we will come up with new mix-ins!

    looks delish. I might just try it before the summer passes us by.

      You should – not really any harder than making french toast – maybe easier!

    I agree weekends are made for cooking, especially when the day begins with a scoop of this lush Challah Bread Pudding! I adore the addition of peaches, soon they will disappear and become a summer memory.

      The heat is tricking us into thinking summer is still here but my daily school carpool schedule says otherwise!

      There is nothing quite like that Saturday morning payoff is there?

    This looks scrumptious! Peaches, blueberries and yummies. Thank you Beth for the fabulous recipe and the visit to my site today. Nice to meet you!

      And you as well! Those peaches and blueberries are becoming just fond memories – time to move on to apples and pumpkin! Or did I freeze some …

    Delicious, Beth – peaches and blueberries are such a great combo together. Challah is something I am yet to try. I will have a go at making it one of these days. I often make my bread pudding with croissants or with panetone, and put in loads of raspberries and chocolate.
