Israeli Soul – by Michael Solomonov & Description:

Israeli Soul – In the follow-up to their 2016 James Beard Award-winning Zahav chef Solomonov and his business partner Cook (together they have a string of restaurants in Philadelphia) mine the melting pot of Israel for the 70-year-old countrys classic meals. Dishes are examined with quasi-Talmudic love…[and] temptingly presented. Whether cracking a joke about hummus (After almost 1000 years people are pretty much okay with where hummus is at. It doesnt need to be deconstructed) or offering thorough guidance for crafting pita dough this duo strikes a heartwarming enthusiastic tone. Expect this offering to be as successful as Zahav. –Publishers Weekly STARRED review Praise for Zahav Solomonovs food is the genuine cooking that you find all over Israel . . . cooking that bursts with freshly ground spices and complex flavors from char-edged kebabs to tahini-rich sauces chewy grains fresh herbs and rainbows of vegetable salatim or small cold salads that are the vivid starting point of every meal. –New York Times The pervasive feeling is one of warmth and commensality and celebration family-style platters rather than perfect platings a paean to off-the-cuff pleasures and raucous gatherings. –Eater Israeli Soul – by Michael Solomonov &
