Finally, a book about food from Jerusalem and the surrounding regions - the melting pot of the Middle East where so many forms of different international cuisine meet.
Shakshuka is actually a dish of eggs poached directly in a spicy tomato sauce although the name also means "mixture", which is the perfect definition of Jerusalem’s cuisine.
Jerusalem is home to dishes from North Africa, Southern Europe, neighbouring countries to the south and the east and even Eastern Europe and Russia. It is home to the best food in the Middle East!
