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.
