About Sami Tamimi
Sami Tamimi (Author) Sami Tamimi was born and raised in Jerusalem and was immersed in food from childhood. He started his career as commis-chef in a Jerusalem hotel and worked his way up, through many restaurants and ethnic traditions, to become head chef of Lilith, one of the top restaurants in Tel Aviv in the 1990's. Sami moved to London in 1997 and worked at Baker and Spice as head chef, where he set up a traiteur section with a rich Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean spread. In 2002 he partnered with Noam Bar and Yotam Ottolenghi to set up Ottolenghi in Notting Hill. The company now has four stores and two restaurants, NOPI and ROVI, all in central London. In his position as the executive head chef, Sami is involved in developing and nurturing young kitchen talents and creating new dishes and innovative menus. Alongside Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi is co-author of two bestselling cookbooks: Ottolenghi: The Cookbook and Jerusalem: A Cookbook.

'Ottolenghi changed the way we cook in this country just as surely and enduringly as Elizabeth David’s A Book of Mediterranean Food had in 1950. It brought into our kitchens bold flavours, a vivid simplicity, a spirited but never tricksy inventiveness and, above all, light.’ Nigella Lawson
Inspired by their childhoods in West and East Jerusalem, Yotam Ottolenghi’s and Sami Tamimi’s original cookbook Ottolenghi: The Cookbook showcases fresh, honest, bold cooking and has become a culinary classic.
Yotam and Sami's inventive yet simple dishes rest on numerous culinary traditions, ranging from North Africa to Lebanon, Italy and California. First published in 2008, this new updated edition revisits the 140 original recipes covering everything from accomplished meat and fish main courses, through to healthy and quick salads and suppers, plus Ottolenghi's famously delectable cakes and breads.
A new introduction sheds fresh light on a book that has become a national favourite.
Ottolenghi is an award-winning chef, being awarded with the James Beard Award 'Cooking from a Professional Point of View' for Nopi in 2016, and 'International Cookbook' for Jerusalem in 2013. In 2013 he also won four other awards for Jerusalem.
Praise for Ottolenghi:
‘[A] book that has barely left my kitchen…the fact that Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi have been generous to put their recipes in a book is something I had long dreamed of’ Nigel Slater, The Observer Magazine
‘Possibly the best cookery book I have ever owned. The recipes…are well-tested and produce results that will astound your tastebuds. Try the aubergine-wrapped ricotta gnocchi with sage butter, the chicken with three-rice salad or their famous meringues and you'll know just what I mean.’ Caroline Jowett, Daily Express
‘A wonderful book for vegetarians and cake lovers alike’ Bee Wilson, Sunday Times

Winner of the Observer Food Monthly Cookbook of the Year 2013.
Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi are the men behind the bestselling Ottolenghi: The Cookbook. Their chain of restaurants is famous for its innovative flavours, stylish design and superb cooking.
At the heart of Yotam and Sami's food is a shared home city: Jerusalem. Both were born there in the same year, Sami on the Arab east side and Yotam in the Jewish west. Nearly 30 years later they met in London, and discovered they shared a language, a history, and a love of great food.
Jerusalem sets 100 of Yotam and Sami's inspired, accessible recipes within the cultural and religious melting pot of this diverse city. With culinary influences coming from its Muslim, Jewish, Arab, Christian and Armenian communities and with a Mediterranean climate, the range of ingredients and styles is stunning. From recipes for soups (spicy frikkeh soup with meatballs), meat and fish (chicken with caramelized onion and cardamom rice, sea bream with harissa and rose), vegetables and salads (spicy beetroot, leek and walnut salad), pulses and grains (saffron rice with barberries and pistachios), to cakes and desserts (clementine and almond syrup cake), there is something new for everyone to discover.
Packed with beautiful recipes and with gorgeous photography throughout, Jerusalem showcases sumptuous Ottolenghi dishes in a dazzling setting.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Falastin nos acerca a los platos tradicionales palestinos, muchos actualizados para que podamos incorporarlos a nuestra vida contemporánea. [...] Además de presentarnos un centenar de recetas de lo más apetitosas, el libro da voz a algunos palestinos como Vivien Sansour, que está detrás del proyecto Semillero de Palestina. [...] Falastin es, a la vez, un viaje a Palestina. Un libro valioso no solo por sus recetas, sino por su acercamiento a una cultura que hay que preservar y apoyar.»
«Un lujoso compendio de recetas palestinas... fotografiadas tan vívidamente que casi puede olerse el perejil recién cortado.»
«Falastin es una hermosamente relajada, detallada y afectuosa celebración de la cocina palestina con la que Tamimi creció.»
«Una lectura imprescindible... una obra de amor que se merece el fervor de manera absoluta.»
«Una fantástica celebración de la cocina contemporánea de Oriente Medio.»
«Un luminoso conjunto de recetas que refleja la tradición culinaria palestina y sin embargo es sumamente contemporáneo. [...] No hay un solo plato que no me apetezca probar.»
