A little about ourselves
James Beard Book of the Year and Best International Cookbook (2016)
Food has always been one of the important links for bringing the Jewish community together. In Talmud we read “there can be no joy without food and drink” and from our experience we know that food has helped defie Jews as a people – from the traditional laws of kashrut to foods that are identifid with various Jewish holidays, Jewish communities, and individual Jewish families. Zahav is the 2016 James Beard Award winner for “Best International Cookbook” and “Book of the Year.” This visually stunning book showcases the melting-pot cooking of Israel, especially the inflences of the Middle East, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Eastern Europe. Zahav tells an authoritative and personal story of how Solomonov embraced the food of his birthplace. With its blend of technique and passion, this book shows readers how to make his food their own.
