When I received my copy of Cook in Israel in the mail, I instantly added Orly Ziv to that list. Ziv sets out to welcome you into her heart and home through food, and the personalized note she wrote in the cover was a nice touch that I've never experienced before.
Capturing the essence of a recipe along with the essence of the author themselves is a difficult task, yet a task completed so skillfully by Orly and her photographer. Each image is bright and inviting, making me wish I had time to cook most of the recipes in this book. Vegetarians and vegans may particularly enjoy this work as there are just two meat recipes in the entire book and the focus on real food, whole ingredients and cooking with local produce means there are plenty of gluten free dishes for you to sample too.Read more....

Cook in Israel - Home Cooking Inspiration by Orly Ziv is a new cookbook featuring basic Israeli fare for the home cook. And that's a good thing.
Everyone loves the variety of salads, or “salatim,” that traditional Israeli cuisine offers, and Cook in Israel dedicates its first three sections to eggplant and tomatoes, salads and vegetables. Included are simple classics like baba ghanoush, hummus and Moroccan carrot salad. But there are also some innovative twists on tradition like Israeli salad with pomegranate and avocado and shakshuka with eggplant. Read more....

Joy of Kosher
Cook In Israel is the new cookbook written by Orly Ziv. Orly contacted me a few months ago and told me about her cooking school in Israel and the cookbook she was working on. It sounded very exciting, but to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect. A few months later this gorgeous new cookbook filled with my favorite kinds of Israeli style recipes showed up at my doorstep. I learned that Katherine Martinelli, a long time friend of joyofkosher took the photos! Needless to say I am excited to share this book with you and to learn more about Orly and her new cookbook.
I feel a kindred spirit with you being that we are both nutritionists and I love that your book is mostly vegetarian.Read more...
Using her years of experience dealing with food, Orly Ziv has created an English-language cookbook featuring traditional Israeli recipes.
After a colorful career as a trained nutritionist and setting up her own successful business offering culinary tours of Israel, Orly Ziv thought long and hard about what her next step would be. As a food lover, it only seemed natural to concentrate her expertise and write a cookbook sharing her vast knowledge of the local Israeli cuisine.
Her first cookbook, the English-language Cook in Israel: Home Cooking Inspiration, features over 100 mostly vegetarian kosher recipes and draws on inspiration from years of expertise in the culinary world as well as her rich food heritage.
Ziv recently sat down with The Jerusalem Post to talk about the cookbook and the inspirations behind it as well as her work in the world of food tourism.
