A new year and a new cookbook!

After years of research, my latest work, "King Solomon's Table: a Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World," will be released by Alfred A. Knopf on April 4, 2017.

This book took me across continents and kitchens and working on it has been one of my favorite culinary experiences to date. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed writing it! If you are interested, you can pre-order the book here: bit.ly/2hQOub6

Happy holidays!

King Solomon's Cake from my new cookbook "King Solomon's Table: a Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World," due out from Alfred A. Knopf on April 4, 2017.

Also known as Libyan Saefra, this wonderful orange cake is filled with dates and coated in saffron and honey. It has been enjoyed for centuries in North Africa and will definitely be loved for centuries more in my own home.

Many more recipes like this can be found in my new book and I hope you consider pre-ordering it here: bit.ly/2hQOub6

I've changed the recipe a bit for a more modern kitchen but it is still one of my favorite chicken dishes.
