The first authoritative cookbook to present the culinary treasures and intriguing customs of the ancient yet enduring Aleppian Jewish community--with 150 mouthwatering recipes and gorgeous color photos

When the Aleppian Jewish community migrated from the ancient city of Aleppo in historic Syria and settled in New York and Latin American cities in the early 20th century, it brought its rich cuisine and vibrant culture. Most Syrian recipes, however, were not written down and existed only in the mind of older cooks. Poopa Dweck, a first generation Syrian-Jewish American, has devoted much of her life to preserving and celebrating her community's centuries-old legacy.

Dweck places the Aleppian Jewish cuisine in historical and cultural context, offers 150 exciting ethnic recipes with tantalizing photos, and describes the unique customs that the Aleppian Jewish community observes during holidays and lifecycle events. Among the irresistible recipes are:

- Bazargan--Tangy Tamarind Bulgur Salad

- Shurbat Addes--Hearty Red Lentil Soup with Garlic and Coriander

- Kibbeh--Stuffed Syrian Meatballs with Ground Rice

- Samak b'Batata--Baked Middle Eastern Whole Fish with Potatoes

- Sambousak--Buttery Cheese-Filled Sesame Pastries

- Eras bi'Ajweh--Date-Filled Crescents

- Chai Na'na--Refreshing Mint Tea

Like mainstream Middle Eastern cuisines, Aleppian Jewish dishes are alive with flavor and healthful ingredients--featuring whole grains, vegetables, legumes, and olive oil--but with their own distinct cultural influences. In Aromas of Aleppo, cooks will discover the best of Poopa Dweck's recipes, which gracefully combine Mediterranean and Levantine influences, and range from small delights (or maza) to daily meals and regal holiday feasts--such as the twelve-course Passover seder. Aromas of Aleppo offers a rich ethnic feast for the palate, the eyes, and the soul.

    In this stunning new work that is at once a coffee-table book to browse and a complete cookbook, Janna Gur brings us the sumptuous color, variety, and history of today's Israeli cuisine, beautifully illustrated by Eilon Paz, a photographer who is intimate with the local scene.

    In Gur's captivating introduction, she describes Israeli food as a product of diverse cultures: the Jews of the Diaspora, settling in a homeland that was new to them, brought their far-flung cuisines to the table even as they looked to their Arab neighbors for additional ingredients and ideas. The delicious, easy-to-follow recipes represent all of these influences, and include some creative interpretations of classics by celebrated Israeli chefs: Beetroot and Pomegranate Salad, Fish Falafel in Spicy Harissa Mayonnaise, Homemade Shawarma, Chreime-North African Hot Fish Stew, Roasted Chicken Drumsticks in Carob Syrup. With favorite recipes for the Sabbath (Sweet Challah Traditional Chopped Liver, Chocolate and Halva Coffeecake) and for holidays (Balkan Potato and Leek Pancakes, Flourless Chocolate and Pistachio Cake), this book offers a unique culinary experience for every occasion. All of this is enriched by Paz's gorgeous and vibrantly colored photographs and by short narratives about significant aspects of Israel's diverse cuisine, such as the generous and unique Israeli breakfast (which grew out of the needs of Kibbutz life), locally produced cheeses that now rival those of Europe, and a dramatic renaissance of wine culture in this ancient land.

    "In less than thirty years," Janna Gur writes, "Israeli society has graduated... to a true gastronomic haven." Here she gives us a book that does full, delectable justice to the significance of Israeli food today-Mediterranean at its heart, richly spiced, and imbued with cross-cultural flavors.

    Named one of the Best Cookbooks of the Year by Food & Wine, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, The Washington Post, and more

    Israeli baking encompasses the influences of so many regions--Morocco, Yemen, Germany, and Georgia, to name a few--and master baker Uri Scheft seamlessly marries all of these in his incredible baked goods at his Breads Bakery in New York City and Lehamim Bakery in Tel Aviv. Nutella-filled babkas, potato and shakshuka focaccia, and chocolate rugelach are pulled out of the ovens several times an hour for waiting crowds. In Breaking Breads, Scheft takes the combined influences of his Scandinavian heritage, his European pastry training, and his Israeli and New York City homes to provide sweet and savory baking recipes that cover European, Israeli, and Middle Eastern favorites. Scheft sheds new light on classics like challah, babka, and ciabatta--and provides his creative twists on them as well, showing how bakers can do the same at home--and introduces his take on Middle Eastern daily breads like kubaneh and jachnun. The instructions are detailed and the photos explanatory so that anyone can make Scheft's Poppy Seed Hamantaschen, Cheese Bourekas, and Jerusalem Bagels, among other recipes. With several key dough recipes and hundreds of Israeli-, Middle Eastern-, Eastern European-, Scandinavian-, and Mediterranean-influenced recipes, this is truly a global baking bible.

He examines the biblical milk-and-meat taboo, the first vegetarian practices, and the invention of the restaurant. Through text and drawings, Katchor illuminates the historical confluence of events and ideas that led to the development of a "milekhdike (dairy) personality" and the proliferation of dairy restaurants in America, and he recollects his own experiences in many of these iconic restaurants just before they disappeared.

    One weekend, a decade ago, author Rena Rossner was served a bowl of lentil soup at dinner. The portion of the Bible that had been discussed that week was the chapter in which Esau sells his birthright to his brother Jacob for a bowl of red lentil soup. Rossner was struck by the ability to bring the Bible alive in such a tactile way and decided on the spot to see whether she could incorporate the Bible into a meal each week. And so she has. The result, Eating the Bible, is an innovative cookbook with original, easy-to-prepare recipes that will ignite table conversation while pleasing the stomach. Every meal will become both a tactile and intellectual experience as the recipes enrich both the soul of the cook and the palates of those at the table.

    Every cook must glance at a recipe countless times before completing a dish. Often recipes involve five- to ten-minute periods during which one must wait for the water to boil, the soup to simmer, or the onions to sauté. It is Rossner's goal to help enrich those moments with biblical verse and commentary, to enable cooks to feed their souls as they work to feed the members of the household and guests. From the zesty "Garden of Eden Salad" to the "Honey Coriander Manna Bread," each recipe will delight the palate and spark the mind.

    From Kosher classics to gourmet international dishes, this is Jewish soul food . . . finally made healthy!

    Too often, Jewish cookbooks still feature many recipes that lack whole grains and include too much salt, fat, sugar, and processed foods. But Paula Shoyer's delicious take on Jewish cooking is different: she uses only natural ingredients and offers a fresh, nutrient-dense spin on every dish. Here you'll find very little frying, and no margarine, frozen puff pastry, soup stocks and powders, and most jarred sauces. More than 60 recipes recipes include both Sephardic and Ashkenazy Jewish classics (Israeli Herb and Almond Salad, Sourdough Challah, Tzimmes Puree, Potato and Scallion Latkes, Schnitzel with Nut Crust) as well as American and international dishes that extend beyond the Jewish culinary world. In Shoyer's words: "This book has food you'll recognize, because you still want to feel connected to your ancestors' kitchens, but I've made it more nutritious and often easier to make."

    The array of delicious international dishes includes:
    Arroz con Pollo with Brown Rice and Salsa Verde * Korean Bibimbap with Tofu * Bouillabaisse * Cambodian Spring Rolls with Lime Chili and Peanut Dipping Sauce * Feijoada (Brazilian Cholent with Collard Greens and Farofa) * Fish Tacos with Cilantro Lime Rice * Indian Barbecue Chicken * Japanese Lamb Chops * Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup * and much more!
