Oren: Recipes and Stories from Tel Aviv
Oded Oren has worked in a number of the Tel Aviv's feted restaurants, such as the famed Turkiz and Food Art, Tamuz. He has also undertaken a series of stages in some of the world’s best kitchens, which resulted in his permanent move to London, via California and Paris. In 2011, he founded a catering business and then in 2018, he opened his restaurant, Oren.
The modern cultural hub of the Middle East, Tel Aviv provides a true East-meets-West juncture. The simplest way to describe the food is flavors of the Mediterranean mingled with accents of the Middle East.
In Oren, Oded Oren celebrates Tel Aviv with simple, seasonal recipes which celebrate every ingredient. The chapters are broken down by the ten most important ingredients, all of which you can find in your local supermarket.
From toasted almond and oregano salad with feta and fish soup with fennel and arak, to lamb koftas with Swiss chard, tomatoes and chickpeas and hummus with braised ox cheeks, Oded's food speaks of his journey as a chef as well as the constant inspiration that springs from his native Tel Aviv.
With stunning photography, this book is perfect for novice and keen cooks alike.
