Once in a while a cookbook comes along that’s so stunning I just have to sit down and fan myself.
Readers, may I present The Tahini Table: Go Beyond Hummus with 100 Recipes for Every Meal by Amy Zitelman. Amy is the founder of Soom Foods, a premium tahini company, and we met virtually through our mutual publisher, Agate Publishing / Surrey Books.
Full disclosure: I received a review copy of the book from the publisher and two jars of tahini from Amy to try making some of the recipes.
Every page of this book is just as gorgeous as this one. I chose this recipe for my show The Blue and Yellow Kitchen for a couple of reasons. I wanted to honor the subtitle and choose something that wasn’t hummus. It’s the holiday season, and I thought this would be a fabulous upgrade for a butternut squash dish, which is why I’m publishing it early enough for y’all to shop for ingredients. It’s easy and hits those unique Middle-Eastern flavors that the book celebrates.
