Wineberg's Eggplant Cream“Wineberg is mine and Syb's favorite place together, and we always used to get this dish.” -Nitzan Gadassi
Good Beit Cafe Lentil (or Quinoa) Salad"Because what will you do without Faruk’s lentil salad in NYC???" -Ceci
Matbucha- Spicy Moroccan "Salsa"Get your spicy Moroccan “salsa” on and forever remember your spicy Moroccan friend a short flight away☺
Fried Eggplant SaladMore Moroccan yumminess to share with your new friends. Always a crowd pleaser, spicy, lemony and savory, we've enjoyed it before as a mezze before a meal, a tasty addition to a salad or sandwich and with tehina, of course. -Ceci
Roasted Cauliflower and Tehina SaladReally, you can make this recipe with almost any vegetable (zucchini, eggplant, broccoli etc.) similarly, but we know the fond place in your heart for cauliflower. Also, you can sub out tehina for labane in any iteration of this and it is also delish. Just imagine you're on your way home from yoga, and stopped to say hi and refuel with a filling and vegetarian classic! -Ceci
Orange SoupDear Syb, Here is a classic Israeli dish to keep you warm on those cold New York nights. We will miss you, but we know you will be back to visit :) I hope you have lots of fun, adventures, learning experiences, and--of course--many hot dates ;-) I wish you the best of luck, although I'm sure you don't need it. It will be great!!! Lots of love, Lib
Ohad’s “Dish of the Year” French Onion SoupOf all of the things we cooked in all that time in Boston, this soup won “Dish of the Year” for good reason. Maybe because it took Ohad ALL DAY to prepare it, or maybe because we finished it in 10 minutes it was so tasty, either way it was imperative this recipe makes it with you to NYC.
Split Pea SoupOne of many soups that kept us warm on disgustingly freezing nights in Somerville. This recipe is the vegetarian version, but you can always sear off some dark chicken pieces in the beginning and continue with the rest of the recipe to make it even more hearty.
Sweet and Sour CabbageThis needs no introduction, as that weird looking but freakily tasty way to prepare cabbage. The deconstructed, vegetarian adaptation of traditional Ashkenazi stuffed cabbage is Mizrahi-ed with the addition of spicy paprika and by serving it cold or room temperature as a salad. This dish will always conjure up the image of the two of us standing and eating it straight out of the container. -Ceci
Moroccan FishThis is my adaptation of Safta’s star dish of every Shabbat dinner. We ate this a few times when we missed Israeli homecooking in Boston, and I hope you can share it with new friends and your family, as a starter or even as the main dish! Maybe your mom can even replace her grilled salmon with it once or twice☺
Chicken and PotatoesOld faithful recipe for the tastiest roasted potatoes around (can’t get better than chicken fat as a flavor.) This recipe is so fast and easy to make that it got us through many a lonely meal in Somerville, but it also a perfect recipe for Shabbat dinner. (photo not really relevant, but awesome nonetheless:)
Moussaka with Tehina"This is a great dish for entertaining because it is beautiful, tasty and exotic, and by whipping up a quick salad and rice, makes for a very filling complete meal. You can of course make a béchamel sauce instead of the tehina, but once-Kosher Ceci tried tehina as a substitute back in the day and can’t do it any other way since (non-Kosherness withstanding.) Also, this is a flagship recipe part of my (our?) plan for tehina/sesamaise to take over the culinary world." -Ceci
Roasted Turkey Breast (and other iterations)This is my go-to for having a lean protein in the fridge for the week that you can turn into a million other things. The turkey by itself is delicious and can be eaten on its own, sliced and added to a salad or sandwich, sautéed with veggies to make a tasty mix to serve over rice or made into turkey salad (shred it up and mix with red onion, apple, herbs, and tehina.) The options are endless!
Chocolate Cake with Fudgy ToppingThis is the perfect chocolate cake recipe. It is my go-to any time I have to bring dessert to a friend's house. Everyone always loves it. It is moist and rich but the most important part is not to open the oven in the middle of baking - otherwise the cake falls.... Enjoy! -Anat
Ridiculous and healthy ginger-peanut kale with tofu and quinoaSo my willingness to give peanut butter a chance (as an adult) was totally inspired by you. Literally until you started sneaking peanut butter on slices of apple in the Reut kitchen I didn't think it was legitimate to eat peanut butter after the age of 10...so thank you! Anyway this is the yummmmmy salad i made that night at shabbat dinner. ear your heart out!
Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana and Peanut Butter BitesJust yum. No story needed - just make them. (Ella eats them)
Alissa's Steamed VeggiesThe moment I felt the best about myself was when you came over and i invited you to join our crappy nothing dinner. i made steamed veggies and you were so impressed...love you.
Thai Red Curry with ChickenWhip up a pot of this and be transported to the magical jungle land that is Haad Yuan. Just close your eyes, take a bite and pretend you're at Bamboo Restaurant with a beautiful view of the water in front of you. Next stop: Stone Bar.
Pad ThaiThis Thai classic is actually pretty easy once you start keeping some of the Thai condiments and essentials around. You also can really never go wrong with Pad Thai, making it a consistent crowd pleaser. Impress New Yorkers not only with how many times you've been to Thailand, but also with your ability to bring Thailand home with you.

Here’s some quick information regarding how our cookbook platform works, along with a few tips for making the most of cookbooks you add to your library.
What is the Cookbook Café Platform?Cookbook Café is our one-of-a-kind cookbook publisher, marketplace and reader. It empowers everyone to create, market and distribute a cookbook as both a web-based eBook and an iPad app. It also makes it incredibly easy for home cooks to discover and use amazing grassroots cookbooks they won't find anywhere else. Since 2012, we've published thousands of cookbooks authored by home chefs, nonprofit organizations, clubs, brands, etc. Our goal is to democratize cookbook publishing and make it easy to build an online library of amazing grassroots cookbooks.
How do I "download" a cookbook?You don't need to "download" cookbooks or deal with any files. All of the cookbooks you select (free and paid) using Cookbook Café become available to you automatically on any device (computer, tablet or smartphone) whenever you’re logged-in to your free BakeSpace account.
When you see a cookbook you like, simply click the green "Get it Now" button. If you're not logged in to BakeSpace, you'll be asked to login (or join) so the cookbook can be added to your cookbook library. Once in your library, you can access the cookbook anytime, anywhere via BakeSpace.com, as well as our Cookbook Café iPad app.
While you're checking out cookbooks, also take some time to visit other parts of the delicious BakeSpace.com community where you can swap recipes and connect with others who share your passion for food and the culinary lifestyle.
Get ready to enjoy a uniquely smart and social cookbook experience!Once a cookbook is added to your BakeSpace library, our proprietary recipe indexing technology makes it easy for you to find any specific recipe across all of your cookbooks… so there's no need to remember which cookbook contains that perfect recipe. In addition, you can connect directly with each cookbook author, leave comments/reviews and even ask questions about recipe substitutions, history, etc.
