COOKING THE HISTORY
Eating is a way to commemorate the past.
I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart.
All of these elements brought me to write SEPHARDI: COOKING THE HISTORY.
Ever since I complete my PhD in History, this historical cookbook which focused on the culinary heritage of the Sephardim has been thriving and has quickly gained a loyal following.
To see what I’ve been up to, browse my site, learn about the Jewish History through food, see my passions, and explore what excites and interests you as well.
A New Way to learn the Real Culinary History of the Sephardim
Original sources ranging from the thirteenth century onwards and written in Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, Occitan, Italian, and Hebrew, are here presented in English translation, bearing witness to the culinary diversity of the Sephardim, who brought their cuisine with them and kept it alive wherever they went.
I have been enlightening commentary for each of the 57 recipes and 96 photos, revealing underlying societal issues from anti-Semitism to social order. In addition, I provide several of my own recipes inspired by my research and academic studies.
Each creation and bite of the dishes herein are guaranteed to transport you to the most deeply moving and intriguing aspects of Jewish history.
