The Twelfth Day of Christmas Cookbook Giveaways — Jerusalem: A Cookbook

Jerusalem: A Cookbook

Jerusalem: A Cookbook

by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi

Publisher: Ten Speed Press

Buy on Amazon

Today is the day: the 12th and final day of Christmas, the last day of gift-giving. As my final gift, I’ve chosen the #1 book on both the Eat Your Books list and the Eater list of lists of  “Best Cookbooks of 2012″: Jerusalem: A Cookbook, by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi (Ten Speed Press). In fact, on informal lists, I’ve seen this cookbook named by almost everyone as THE 2012 cookbook people want the most. I think I need to buy two copies: one for you and one for me…

This title seems especially fitting as a representation of and a wrap-up to the season of celebration and joy. And it is also, I hope, a good way for me to thank you, the Cooks&Books&Recipes readers: I truly appreciate you all!

In Jerusalem, Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi explore the vibrant cuisine of their home city—with its diverse Muslim, Jewish, and Christian communities. Both men were born in Jerusalem in the same year—Tamimi on the Arab east side and Ottolenghi in the Jewish west. This stunning cookbook offers 120 recipes from their unique cross-cultural perspective, from inventive vegetable dishes to sweet, rich desserts. With five bustling restaurants in London and two stellar cookbooks, Ottolenghi is one of the most respected chefs in the world; in Jerusalem, he and Tamimi have collaborated to produce their most personal cookbook yet.

Notes: There are six ways to enter the giveaway, but it’s not necessary to do all six entries. Choose whichever one(s) you like, and you’ll be entered in the giveaway. Giveaway ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, January 13, 2013.

    According to my sources, the problem is getting worse now that the holiday season is
    well underway and the store is handing out discount coupons to customers to encourage them to spend.
    Do not forget to click the provided coupons to make your
    transaction, fill available coupon code to receive the
    discount during checkout. Lenders are quite particular about how the gift money achieve the closing table.
