    I particularly like the way this book is set out, with dishes grouped under casual dinner party, quick and easy, recipes to feed your kids, recipes best enjoyed outdoors and restaurant-worthy dishes..

  • Boston Globe by T. Susan Chang

    On balance, the finds in “Balaboosta” are good enough to make up for the book’s erratic performance. What I’d really like to see would be comprehensive testing for every recipe in the book...

    This is a book with a beating heart, steeped in personal and cultural history and pounding with flavors from the Middle East. ...blends all those flavors into an edible personal narrative...

Publishers Text

A Balaboosta - Yiddish for 'perfect housewife' - loves nothing more than feeding those she loves. Here, Einat provides all the recipes a 21st-century Balaboosta needs to feed all the people in her life, be it her friends, her husband, her children, her extended family, or the many people she wants to entertain. Recipes are a seamless marriage of the flavors of Einat's mixed Israeli heritage (Yemenite, Persian, Moroccan, and European) and the fresh, sophisticated tastes she learned while working in Manhattan's most serious kitchens. The result is a melting pot of offerings: harissa-spiced Moroccan fish; Spanish-style shrimp; grilled eggplant; chicken schnitzel; Persian rice; beet gnocchi; butternut squash and saffron soup and roasted broccoli, to name a few.
