The two chefs behind a string of successful casual restaurants in London share the food of their hometown: Jerusalem. Ottolenghi and Tamimi grew up in different quarters of the city, Yotam in the Jewish community and Tamimi amongst the Palestinians. But their affection for the city and the range of intersecting cultures in its food scene is mutual. Whether they’re paying tribute to different versions of something as everyday as hummus or giving a nod to a recent creation of one of the city’s chefs, they communicate a relentless enthusiasm for simple home cooking that has put this book atop many bestseller lists.
