Lauded for bringing the Middle Eastern, North African, Mediterranean, and Eastern European influences from Solomonov’s titular Philadelphia restaurant to readers’ home kitchens, Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook’s Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking won the 2016 James Beard Book of the Year and Best International Cookbook award. Solomonov won the 2011 James Beard Award for “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic,” and his restaurants have been recognized by Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, and Travel + Leisure.
