Venezia in Cucina
The flavours of Venice
Hardcover ISBN: 8895218426
Venice has always been a bustling trade city. Its cuisine is the most profound expression of a territorial identity and was not immune to contaminations by other cultures. The need to preserve food during long sea journeys and strong links with the Far East—the origin of the city’s imported spices—generated recipes with unexpected flavours. Nonetheless, the flavour of Venetian dishes reveals something more than its commercial past. To discover its complexities you must sail to the lagoon’s islands, where the restaurants offer authentic traditional Venetian cuisine. VENEZIA IN CUCINA captures the essence and inspiration of many of those native Venetian dishes, including everything from antipasti and entrees to wine pairings and delectable desserts.

The James Beard Award–winning chef and co-owner of Philadelphia's Zahav restaurant reinterprets the glorious cuisine of Israel for American home kitchens. Ever since he opened Zahav in 2008, chef Michael Solomonov has been turning heads with his original interpretations of modern Israeli cuisine, attracting notice from the New York Times,Bon Appétit, ("an utter and total revelation"), and Eater ("Zahav defines Israeli cooking in America"). Zahav showcases the melting-pot cooking of Israel, especially the influences of the Middle East, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Eastern Europe. Solomonov's food includes little dishes calledmezze, such as the restaurant's insanely popular fried cauliflower; a hummus so ethereal that it put Zahav on the culinary map; and a pink lentil soup with lamb meatballs that one critic called "Jerusalem in a bowl." It also includes a majestic dome of Persian wedding rice and a whole roasted lamb shoulder with pomegranate and chickpeas that's a celebration in itself. All Solomonov's dishes are brilliantly adapted to local and seasonal ingredients. Zahav tells an authoritative and personal story of how Solomonov embraced the food of his birthplace. With its blend of technique and passion, this book shows readers how to make his food their own.
