This book proves it: nowhere on the planet do you eat better than in Tel Aviv. This lavishly photographed cookbook focuses on the colorful streets of this Middle Eastern city. Find recipes for Tel Aviv's unsurpassed fast food like hummus, falafel, shakshuka, and sabich, the popular Israeli sandwich.

This coastal city is paradise on earth: great weather all year round, beautiful beaches, leading museums, unique architecture, and a flourishing economy. The inhabitants are handsome, young, and creative, and radiate an unbridled zest for life. This zest is captured in the incredible location photography throughout TLV.
