Sami Tamimi
June 16, 2020
Falastin

A soulful tour of Palestinian cooking today from the Ottolenghi restaurants’ executive chef and partner—120 recipes shaped by his personal story as well as the history of Palestine.

“Truly, one of the best cookbooks of the year so far.”—Bon Appétit

The story of Palestine’s food is really the story of its people. When the events of 1948 forced residents from all regions of Palestine together into one compressed land, recipes that were once closely guarded family secrets were shared and passed between different groups in an effort to ensure that they were not lost forever. 

In Falastin (pronounced “fa-la-steen”), Sami Tamimi retraces the lineage and evolution of his country’s cuisine, born of its agriculturally optimal geography, its distinct culinary traditions, and Palestinian cooks’ ingenuity and resourcefulness. Tamimi covers the territory between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River—East Jerusalem and the West Bank, up north to the Galilee and the coastal cities of Haifa and Akka, inland to Nazareth, and then south to Hebron and the coastal Gaza Strip—recounting his upbringing with eleven siblings and his decision to leave home at seventeen to cook in West Jerusalem, where he met and first worked with Yotam Ottolenghi. 

From refugee-camp cooks to the home kitchens of Gaza and the mill of a master tahini maker, Tamimi teases out the vestiges of an ancient culinary tradition as he records the derivations of a dynamic cuisine and people in more than 130 transporting photographs and 120 recipes, including:

• Hassan’s Easy Eggs with Za’atar and Lemon
• Fish Kofta with Yogurt, Sumac, and Chile
• Pulled-Lamb Schwarma Sandwich
• Labneh Cheesecake with Roasted Apricots, Honey, and Cardamom

Named after the Palestinian newspaper that brought together a diverse people, Falastin is a vision of a cuisine, a culture, and a way of life as experienced by one influential chef.

Every Last Bite: A Deliciously Clean Approach to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet

A Deliciously Clean Approach to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) has been hailed as the gold standard of dietary treatment plans for people suffering from autoimmune and digestive disorders. Its core focus is on eliminating non-essential carbohydrates known to cause inflammation, including grains, starchy tubers, and milk products high in lactose. The SCD can put you on the road to recovery from many debilitating symptoms caused by celiac disease, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, and more. However, all too often people are deterred from trying it because they perceive it to be too restrictive or difficult. Carmen Sturdy is here to prove that it is anything but!

In her new cookbook, Every Last Bite: A Deliciously Clean Approach to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet Carmen shows how to prepare delicious, quick, easy, and above all satisfying meals that will please every palate. Each recipe is SCD compliant and promises all the taste and comfort of the familiar foods that you and your family have come to cherish.

While Every Last Bite is rooted in the principals of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, it goes beyond by offering modifications and substitutions to meet an array of dietary plans, including Keto, Paleo, AIP, and more!

Every Last Bite features over 150 recipes that are grain-free, dairy-free and allergen-friendly.  Also included: handy cooking tips, a guide to entertaining, and Carmen’s experience-based tips for keeping your health on track.

Rachel Mansfield’s vibrant debut cookbook proves that living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean adhering to restrictive diets or giving up all the foods you crave. Using better-for-you ingredients, such as grain-free flours, collagen peptides, and coconut sugar, you can indulge while still maintaining a balanced approach to eating.

This highly approachable book is organized to reflect the rhythms of real life: grab-and-go breakfasts, meat and vegetables perfect to mix and match for meal prep, easy solo dinners, potluck-friendly spreads, shareable snacks, and, of course, sweets—lots of ’em because as Rachel says, “You can have your gluten-free cake and eat it too!”
 
Perfect for those who are new to cooking or learning how to incorporate healthy ingredients into their everyday lives, Just the Good Stuff includes an entire chapter on food prep (both a money and time saver!), lots of confidence-building tips, and inspirational advice.

Dinner in French

My Recipes by Way of France: A Cookbook

Just as Julia Child brought French cooking to twentieth-century America, so now Melissa Clark brings French cooking into the twenty-first century. She first fell in love with France and French food as a child; her parents spent their August vacations traversing the country in search of the best meals with Melissa and her sister in tow. Near to her heart, France is where Melissa's family learned to cook and eat. And as her own culinary identity blossomed, so too did her understanding of why French food is beloved by Americans.

Now, as one of the nation's favorite cookbook authors and food writers, Melissa updates classic French techniques and dishes to reflect how we cook, shop, and eat today. With recipes such as Salade Nicoise with Haricot Vert, Cornmeal and Harissa Soufflé, Scalloped Potato Gratin, Lamb Shank Cassoulet, Ratatouille Sheet-Pan Chicken, Campari Olive Oil Cake, and Apricot Tarte Tatin (to name a few), Dinner in French will quickly become a go-to resource and endure as an indispensable classic.

See You on Sunday

A Cookbook for Family and Friends

“People are lonely,” Sam Sifton writes. “They want to be part of something, even when they can’t identify that longing as a need. They show up. Feed them. It isn’t much more complicated than that.” Regular dinners with family and friends, he argues, are a metaphor for connection, a space where memories can be shared as easily as salt or hot sauce, where deliciousness reigns. The point of Sunday supper is to gather around a table with good company and eat.

From years spent talking to restaurant chefs, cookbook authors, and home cooks in connection with his daily work at The New York Times, Sam Sifton’s See You on Sunday is a book to make those dinners possible. It is a guide to preparing meals for groups larger than the average American family (though everything here can be scaled down, or up). The 200 recipes are mostly simple and inexpensive (“You are not a feudal landowner entertaining the serfs”), and they derive from decades spent cooking for family and groups ranging from six to sixty.

From big meats to big pots, with a few words on salad, and a diatribe on the needless complexity of desserts, See You on Sunday is an indispensable addition to any home cook’s library. From how to shuck an oyster to the perfection of Mallomars with flutes of milk, from the joys of grilled eggplant to those of gumbo and bog, this book is devoted to the preparation of delicious proteins and grains, vegetables and desserts, taco nights and pizza parties.
