    Cooking with Date Syrup: Forty Chefs and an Artist Create New and Classic Dishes with a Traditional Middle Eastern Ingredient

    Prominent Iraqi-American artist-provocateur Michael Rakowitz invites forty acclaimed chefs and food writers to create mouthwatering savoury and sweet dishes using date syrup

    Date syrup has been central to Iraqi cooking and home life for centuries. In this unique book, a fusion of the worlds of contemporary art and food, an artist and forty celebrated chefs present delicious dishes using this staple of Middle Eastern cuisine. Their collaboration had its roots in early 2018, when Iraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz unveiled a winged bull sculpture made from thousands of date syrup cans as the latest commission for the Fourth Plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square. As his winged bull sat upon the Fourth Plinth, Rakowitz invited chefs from around the world to create new and classic recipes using date syrup as a way to celebrate this ancient ingredient and symbol of Iraqi culture. Pioneering chefs and food writers including Yotam Ottolenghi, Alice Waters, Claudia Roden, Reem Kassis, Prue Leith, Mourad Mazouz, Jason Hammel, Nuno Mendes, Thomasina Miers, Giorgio Locatelli and Marcus Samuelsson responded to his call by creating dozens of dishes. Their recipes range from the traditional to the innovative in a feast for the taste buds, and include everything from simple brunch dishes, salads and sides to mouth-watering mains, cakes, desserts, drinks and condiments. Easy step-by-step instructions enable the reader to make the recipes at home.

    Beautiful photographs of the dishes are accompanied by the artist’s portrait drawings and sketches of the food. Completing the volume is a foreword by awardwinning food writer and chef Claudia Roden and an appreciation of the importance of the date in Iraqi society by Iraqi-American cultural-studies academic Ella Shohat, while Rakowitz writes about the significance of the syrup to his family and in his work. This special book will appeal to anyone who loves the cuisine of the Middle East and the politics of food in that troubled region.

    It’s the humble Eastern Mediterranean mezze dish that stole our hearts – who’d have thought a little bowl of smashed up chickpeas could taste like magic? As a snack it is far too easy to get through a whole tub if left alone with a family-sized bag of crisps. It has become an essential item for any modern well-stocked fridge, whether served as a dip with plain crackers or vegetable crudités, slathered on bread to give oomph to kebabs or sandwiches, or offered as part of a main meal in its own right. Homemade hummus is superior to store-bought in many ways: it is less sour, more intense in fresh flavours and inexpensive to put together. Author Dunja Gulin shares her tips and tricks for making perfect homemade hummus, so that you can get the flavour balance and texture just right every time. The classic combination is usually chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic and tahini – but this basic recipe is so versatile that it gratefully absorbs any flavour you can throw at it. Chapters include Chickpea-Based Hummus recipes such as Onion Jam Hummus and Fresh Herb Hummus. Bean and Lentil-Based Hummus features Spicy Red Lentil Hummus and an Indonesian style Hummus. The Veggie-Based selection includes a Baked Aubergine variety as well as a Sweet Potato and Coconut. Raw Hummus features a Cashew and Avocado and a Green Pea and Basil. There is a chapter of Dippers with Chapatis, Pitta Breads and Sesame Grissini. A section on Hummus Meals includes Chunky Hummus Burgers, Hummus Pasta Sauce and Veggies Baked in Hummus Batter. Finally, try some Sweet Hummus Brownies or Ice Cream Cups in the daring Desserts section.

    Mezze has become synonymous with the Middle East; a style of eating automatically associated with tables laden and stacked with sharing plates that avalanche from the kitchen. However, that’s just one part of the picture. Eating in the Middle East is both a necessity and a social ritual. In The Jewelled Table, Bethany Kehdy explores the way Middle Easterners cook, eat and entertain, and the rituals of doing so at home, highlighting why the Middle East has such a rich, intricate and wonderful heritage of hospitality in part much inspired by the ‘hospitable’ desert.

    Over 80 ancient and every day recipes from the Middle East will be reinterpreted and made accessible for cooking in a Western kitchen without losing integrity for the classics. Find out the secret to nailing hummus once and for all, whip up a Persian herb frittata, and make an impressive, delicious Ox cheek, shallot and rhubarb stew. From simple weeknight suppers to lazy brunches, Sunday roasts, celebratory feasts and last-minute mayhem, Bethany illustrates that with a few key ingredients, Middle Eastern food is the perfect fit for every occasion.

    Featuring menu plans, detailed instructions on how to cook the recipes, as well as charming anecdotes throughout from Bethany’s own experiences in the Middle East, all set to the backdrop of beautiful location shots, The Jewelled Table is an essential cookbook for anyone who loves the flavours of the Middle East.

    For the bubbes and the balabustas, the keepers of Jewish kitchens and the enthusiastic neophytes, comes a cookbook that celebrates how many Jews eat today.

    In the Jewish culture, as in many others, bubbes, saftas and nanas are the matriarchs of the kitchen and thus the rulers of the roost. They are culinary giants in quilted polyester muumuus and silk slippers who know how to make the Semitic linchpins cherished from childhood--the kugel, the gefilte fish, the matzah ball soup and the crispy-skinned roasted chicken. They all have their specialties but, of course, they won't be around to feed us forever, and that will be a loss indeed. But it will be an even bigger loss if the recipes we grew up on pass away with them, along with those special connections to our past. That's what prompted Amy Rosen, journalist and cookbook author, to spirit the classic recipes from her grandmothers and other role models into the 21st century. All of the dishes in Kosher Style are inspired by the tables and tales and chutzpah of the North American Jewish experience. They also happen to be kosher.
    In this book are all the recipes you need for successful shellfish- and pork-free home entertaining, be it for a Jewish holiday or a workaday dinner. From crave-worthy snacks to family-size salads, soulful mains to show-stopping desserts, all of the recipes are doable in the home kitchen and are clearly marked as either a meat dish, dairy dish, or pareve (neutral). Think: Lacy Latkes & Applesauce, Sour Cream & Onion Potato Knishes, General Tso's Chicken, and Toblerone-Chunk Hamantaschen your family will plotz over. In addition to the classics, Amy has included some of her favorite modern recipes, like a Quinoa-Tofu Bowl with Greens & Green Goddess Dressing, Honey-Harissa Roasted Carrots and a Crisp Cucumber & Radish Salad.
    Kosher Style is for anyone who likes to cook and loves to eat, and it's especially for those yearning to create new shared memories around a table brimming with history, loved ones and maple-soy brisket.
