Yotam Ottolenghi’s Jerusalem

With his newest book Jerusalem (2012 Appetite by Random House), Cordon Bleu-trained chef Yotam Ottolenghi re-teams with his friend and co-owner of his London restaurants, Sami Tamimi. Both men were born in Jerusalem in the same year: Tamimi on the Arab east side and Ottolenghi in the Jewish west. In this book they explore the vibrant cuisine of their home city together, and present an authentic collection of recipes that reflects the city’s melting pot of Muslim, Jewish, Arab, Christian and Armenian communities. Here, try their recipe for red pepper and egg galettes — perfect for a weekend brunch.
