    IMA Cuisine An Israeli Mothers Kitchen (NZ)
    ISBN: 9781775538844
    Publication date: 01/12/2016

    An Israeli mother - and restaurateur - shares her love of food from the eastern Mediterranean and beyond with a range of delicious recipes from her kitchen. Middle Eastern food is on a roll among New Zealand readers and diners. Cookery writers such as the Israeli chef and cookery writer Yotam Ottolenghi have surged into the popular cooking consciousness. It's not hard to see why. Food from the Middle East and around the Mediterranean Sea - whether from North Africa or from Turkey, from Iran or Israel - is colourful, unpretentious, intriguing and (for the most part) relatively easy to prepare. Many of the best dishes are naturally low in fat, cholesterol, sugar and salt. Now a celebrated Auckland personality and restaurateur is offering a galaxy of recipes with locally sourced ingredients. Ima Cuisine draws on the successful work of Haifa-born Yael Shochat, the founder and manager of Ima, a popular restaurant and deli/cafe in Fort Street, central Auckland. Written with the home cook in mind, the dishes here are straightforward, simple to follow and work every time. Recipe and chapter introductions give valuable information about how local dishes are prepared and served, while the comprehensive glossary explains unfamiliar ingredients (which are steadily more common in supermarkets today).
