New York Times Sez This Cookbook Has All the Right Ingredients

#23 best-selling book at Amazon

'Jerusalem' Has All the Right Ingredients.  (The New York Times, 7/30/2013)

Excerpt:    The book’s recipes are traditional in Jerusalem, or loosely inspired by the city, gathering influences from the Christian, Muslim and Jewish cooks who live there, with flavors from almost everywhere else: Iran, Poland, Syria, Italy. Many of them have long lists of ingredients, including spices like sumac and za’atar, and are based on vegetables and grains. Chickpeas, lamb, eggplant and eggs turn up over and over again. 

None of this would suggest a formula for instant success.
