Finalist for the 2017 Gourmand World Cookbook Award. Category: Asian Cuisine.
In A Persian Kitchen, Rottem Lieberson—a presenter on Israel’s Food Channel, an award-winning cookbook author, a food blogger and a mother of three—returns to her roots. With an artist’s touch, she recreates the flavors of her Jewish-Iranian grandmother’s cooking and of her childhood, while adding her own fresh, healthy twists. And she makes sure to provide meticulous step-by-step instructions, so that future generations will be able to recreate the magic.
Lieberson, who has two BA degrees, one in psychology and the other in economics and administration, studied professional cooking at the French Culinary Institute in New York and spent many years working at restaurants in the Big Apple. Since returning to Israel, she has taught cooking workshops, lectured on food, and worked as a consultant to companies. She’s also working on her first novel.
Yedioth Ahronoth: Another league. /Nana10: The biggest problem with Rottem Lieberson’s book is that you just can’t put it down. Physically-emotionally-culinarily speaking, you just can’t let go of it. / Yedioth Ahronoth: For those of you who haven’t yet been exposed to the wonders of Persian cooking, this book will be a magic door into that fantastic cuisine. / Maariv: Beautiful and polished.
