The Book of New Israeli Food - quote highlights

“Spectacularly beautiful” – Pittsburgh Tribune Review

“This is a book that succeeds for both neophyte cook
and trained chef. Wheather it’s the simple food you expect to find or more creative offerings . . . it is impossible to read through this delicious book and not salivate.” – Austin Chronicle

“An engaging mishmash of trendy urban restaurant recipes, really savory street foods, Jewish holiday dishes, tasty everyday ideas . . . A fun exploration of a food culture that’s both very familiar and totally exotic to most of us.” – Portland Oregonian

“This gorgeous work is many things beyond just another cookbook. It could easily be considered a travelogue for the taste buds. With its spectacular photography, and most enjoyably readable, informative text, the book provides the reader with a true gourmet voyage through the Promised Land.” – Dine Magazine

“[Janna Gur] takes readers through the colorful markets and inspires them to roll up their sleeves in their own kitchens.” – Jewish Woman

“Gur’s cookbook—and whole culinary philosophy—is a celebration of “Israeli food” that transcends the political and culinary tensions that usually dominate the Middle East.”– Lilith

“Filled with luscious photographs of both recipes and Israeli scenes, it’s a treasure of diverse cultures and cuisines.” – Shelf Awareness

“This big coffee-table book, rich with gorgeous photographs by Eilon Paz, beautifully makes a case for how Israel now has a distinctive and delicious cuisine.” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“The Book of New Israeli Food is an enticing 304-page tribute to the land’s gastronomic legacy and promise.” – Cleveland Plain Dealer
