About the Author

Einat Admony is the author of Balaboosta and chef/owner of New York City's popular Balaboosta, Kish-Kash, and Taïm restaurants, which have been featured in The New Yorker, the New York Times, and New York magazine, among many other newspapers, magazines, and websites. When Admony is not at her restaurants, she can be found at her home in Brooklyn, cooking for the crowd of family and friends who regularly gather around her dining table.

"A gorgeously cookable take on the kind of simple, sophisticated, intensely flavorful food I find myself always wanting to eat."

"If you're looking for the Jewish-American dishes you grew up with or favorite Mediterranean dishes, you'll find many of them here. If you want something easy to put on the tonight's table or to serve at an upcoming dinner party, those kinds of recipes are here too. And if you've been to one of Einat Admony's restaurants and are hoping to see some favorites that you can make at home, yes, there's a whole chapter for you to plunder. There is something in Balaboosta for everyone." --The Kitchn


"This is going to be a bold claim, but we found the Harry Potter of cookbooks. . . . It's called Balaboosta, and its Israeli-inspired recipes are universal crowd-pleasers. What's even better: They're almost all YA-level easy."


--Dinner: A Love Story

"Inventive and heartily satisfying twists on Middle-Eastern-meets-Mediterranean cuisine." --New York Times

--Publishers Weekly
