Join Tasting Jerusalem, a virtual cooking group started in 2013 to explore the unique flavor profiles and recipes of Middle Eastern cuisines.
Beth Lee of the blog OMG! Yummy and Sarene Wallace, former editor of Edible Ojai and Ventura County founded the group originally to explore Jerusalem: A Cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, published by Ten Speed Press.
Since then the group has grown to over 4000 members from all over the world sharing their food creations, asking and answering questions about ingredients and inspiring each other to explore flavors and recipes from cookbooks and kitchens throughout the Eastern Mediterranean.
You can find many posts right here on the blog with deep dives about specific ingredients as well as lots of delicious recipes. And be sure to join our Facebook cooking group and follow our Facebook page, where you can ask questions, brag about your creations, and join the conversation with other like-minded cooks throughout the world.
All levels of cooks are welcome from novice to chefs - the only requirement is an interest in ingredients, cooking, and the cuisines of the Middle East!
