Britain Recipe for Peace

In this Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012 photo, chefs Yotam Ottolenghi, left, and Sami Tamimi, right, pose for the photographer at their company’s bakery in London. One chef is Israeli, the other a Palestinian. So it is with ‘Jerusalem’ their latest cookbook, that traces their memories of a shared city, the Jewish west and the Arab east, together with the food_ the commodity held in common in a city riven by division. Ottolenghi and Tamimi who have been business partners for about 10 years, run two restaurants and three delis in London and wrote their first cookbook four years ago. They were simply known for saving London’s chicest neighborhoods from culinary boredom with Mediterranean-based recipes infused with exotic flavors. Their new book ‘Jerusalem’ explores the cuisine of the ancient city. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
