Author(s): Danielle Oron
Oron studied at The French Culinary Institute (now the International Culinary Center) and draws cooking inspiration from her Israeli and Moroccan background. Oron is the chef and owner of Moo Milk Bar in Toronto. In Modern Israeli Cooking, Oron offers an incredible collection of Israeli recipes for the modern home cook. Oron takes inspiration from dishes like Schnitzel platters, potato Iatkes and falafel and adapts them with a modern eye to create Israeli-inspired recipes like Cornflake-Crusted Schnitzel Sandwiches with Pickled Radishes and Spicy Mayo, Latkes Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Herby Sour Cream Sauce, and Green Spinach Falafel. Even the format gets a modern twist with chapters like Weekdays - Everyday Kind of Food; Friday - Special dishes made on Shabbat or holidays; Beach - Just like sitting in Tel Aviv on the beach; Midnight - It's late, and you're hungry aka the carb chapter; and more.
Family-style meals inspired by Israeli flavours and modern adaptations from a professional chef and successful restaurateur.
"Modern Israeli Cooking" is taking over where Ottolenghi left off with his book "Jerusalem." Danielle has given us a book that helps us make sense of extremely diverse cultures and their cuisines. We are truly getting a very fresh and creative perspective from such an acclaimed and talented young author. Todd Ginsberg, "James Beard Nominated Chef at The General Muir" Danielle Oron shows her love for Israeli food with her own twist of traditional into modern. Read on and witness her passion, knowledge, dedication and hard work in this book. Mark McEwan, "Chef, Author and Head Judge of Top Chef Canada " "Modern Israeli Cooking" is an intuitive, generous and beautiful book filled with warmth and love of culture, the recipes begging to be made right away and shared with friends. This is not a book that will sit on a shelf, it will be used and will help spread the word about this remarkable cuisine. Erik Murnighan, "President, The International Culinary Center""
