Food & Wine Best Cookbook for Fall 2023
Eater Best Cookbook for Fall 2023
The author of Sababa returns with a collection of good-for-the-soul recipes that embody the spirit and pleasures of Shabbat
As a child, Adeena Sussman looked forward to the magic of Shabbat—the traditional Jewish day of rest—all week. A treasured time when family and friends come together to relax, unwind, and revel in one another’s company during open-ended, tantalizing meals, Shabbat has been practiced all over the world and throughout history. In Sussman’s home, then and now, the Shabbat table is a centering force, a nourishing place where one and all are welcome. It’s an opportunity every week to feed the soul.
Because tradition dictates that the Sabbath is reserved for downtime, Shabbat cooking is all about smart techniques and sound prep. Nostalgic, cozy mains like Fig & Pomegranate Brisket and Bubbe’s Extra-Crispy Potato Kugel are crowd-pleasers and require little hands-on attention. Sides and bright salads like Moroccan Carrot Salad, Roasted Kohlrabi, Cherry & Feta Salad, and Sweet & Tart Eggplant Salad are best served at room temperature. With staples like Amba (pickled mango spread), Tomato Jam, and Schug-a-churri (a blend of Yemenite and South American condiments) on hand, it’s easy to punch up flavor
Adeena Sussman is the author of Sababa. She is the coauthor of fourteen cookbooks, including three New York Times bestselling collaborations with Chrissy Teigen. She cooks and writes from her kitchen in Tel Aviv, where she lives in the shadow of the city’s Carmel Market with her husband, Jay Shofet.
