Anyone who has visited Tel Aviv and sampled the incredible food will want to pick up a copy of the excellent cookbook, My Tel Aviv Table: A journey of flavours and aromas from a sun-soaked city, by Limor Chen, who, with her husband, Amir, founded the Delamina Restaurant Group in London. Not only has Chen put her cooking expertise in menus at her restaurants, she has done an excellent job of capturing the ambience of Israeli food in this cookbook.

The featured dishes in this cookbook are very appealing; there is something for everyone here from dips to salads, to main dishes, to sides, and desserts. The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions that are easy to understand. Each recipe also has comments from the author at the beginning of each recipe, with hints, history, vignettes, or information geared to helping make each recipe a successful endeavor for cooks of all levels – beginning to advanced. Many of the recipes have minimal ingredients, although some have a longer list, but are definitely worth it.

One of the best attributes to this cookbook is that there are gorgeous, professional photographs of almost every recipe. They make the book fun to read, and also allow cooks to see what the finished dishes should look like. This can also make it impossible to decide just what to make next. Every time readers look through this beautiful cookbook their queue of “must make” dishes will grow longer.

All told, anyone who loves Middle Eastern food will benefit from owning this great cookbook. It will make a good addition to any cookbook shelf.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
