To James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Solomonov, Israeli cooking is all about generosity, sharing, and celebration. You’ll find plenty to share and to celebrate in his cookbook Zahav, also the name of his popular restaurant in Philadelphia. From his can’t-miss opening recipe for Hummus Tehina to a party-perfect Coffee-Braised Brisket, these dishes are meant to be enjoyed around a crowded, boisterous table. Let Mezze (small dishes) and Mesibah (which literally translates to party time!) become a part of your everyday vocabulary, and a part of your everyday table. Zahav means gold in Hebrew, and these recipes are treasure, indeed.
