Reviews
Praise for Jewish Soul Food

"No one is more qualified to write about both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jewish cooking than Gur, for she has lived with both cuisines and loves them equally. Here she has collected the most mouthwatering examples of each. I want to cook and taste every recipe--this book makes me very hungry." --David Tanis, author of A Platter of Figs and Other Recipes and One Good Dish

"This is my kind of food--bold, flavorful, and comforting, and with memories of home. I can't wait to cook from this book."--Einat Admony, author of Balaboosta

"Janna Gur's gorgeous new book is both prequel and sequel to Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's Jerusalem. The title alone makes me swoon. There is much to learn here. I have never seen, eaten, or made many of these dishes: her Sabich is gorgeous, as is the Hamin Macaroni, Mafroum, Feta-Stuffed Pepper 'Cutlets, ' and tantalizing Fluden for dessert. In a world cluttered with cookbooks, this is a standout, a poignant narrative of authenticity cast in a contemporary light."--Rozanne Gold, author of the 1-2-3 cookbook series and of Radically Simple: Brilliant Flavors with Breathtaking Ease

"Gur, who opened our palates to the vibrant melting pot of modern Israel, now dazzles us with its multicultural culinary mosaic: the glittering food treasures of its immigrants from one hundred different countries, returned home from the Diaspora. Many writers talk about preserving ethnic food traditions, but Gur gives us the very best reason: every recipe in this focused, elegantly curated collection is irresistible." --Jayne Cohen, author of Jewish Holiday Cooking: A Food Lover's Treasury of Classics and Improvisations
