JBF AWARD WINNER

Michael Solomonov

"Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking"

Steven Cook

"Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking"

The Philadelphia-based Cook N Solo restaurant group draws crowds for the Texas-style pit game at Percy Street Barbecue and the mouthwatering fried chicken at Federal Donuts (not to mention the equally popular Abe Fisher and Dizengoff), but at the center of this budding empire is the modern Israeli cuisine on offer at JBF Award winner Michael Solomonov’s Zahav. Solomonov, a titan of tahini, shares the inspirations and recipes behind some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes in his cookbook, Zahav, which was written with his partner Steven Cook and won the 2016 JBF Award for Book of the Year.
