We cooked from this book for our monthly Cookbook Club and the recipes are incredible! Really well-executed book with the right balance of storytelling, gorgeous photography, and delicious recipes with new and exotic flavors. Some favorites include the three different versions of chicken skewers, hummus, scratch made pita, Israeli salad + cosmos (brilliant idea to use the juices from the salad in a cocktail), and the list goes on. The flavors really brighten up our grey Portland days.

Beautifully photographed, easy to follow recipes, simple LUSH foods common of the Middle East...treat yourself to Zahav.

It made me SO HUNGRY.

Zahav is a beautiful book with interesting and exotic recipes that are accessible to the home cook. Solomonov digs deep into Israeli cooking with techniques for the basics of Tehina and Shrug that are used throughout the book. The recipes are rarely complex and ingredients are readily available. Solomonov also includes anecdotes from his restaurant and personal life that give this title a true warmth. We recommend this book for both the cook book reader and the home cook. Try the hummus recipe, we all agreed it was the best hummus we ever tasted!

A very decent cooking book if one is interested in middle eastern/Mediterranean cooking. I liked the depth of the sections for hummus, tahini and for rice dishes best. It is comparable with Ottolenghi's Jerusalem cook book in what dishes it covers (with more depth in some food categories and less in others).
