    A vibrant celebration of the shared flavors and traditions of Greece, Turkey, and Lebanon, from the star chef whose restaurant Zaytinya became an overnight sensation 

    José Andrés’s restaurant Zaytinya is that rarest of things: an overnight success whose popularity has extended through two decades thanks not only to the iconic ingredients and mezze of the Eastern Mediterranean that it features, but also to José’s passion for honoring these classic flavors and traditions with undeniable enthusiasm and curiosity.

    While the restaurant led the way for the modern mezze restaurants that can now be found across the United States, the Zaytinya cookbook will draw on the flavors, spices, and ingredients of a region whose food traditions date back to classical times and where the primal impulse to share food with friends and family remains central. Based on exhaustive research, travel and tastings with José’s team, the dishes in Zaytinya are stunningly presented and simply delicious. From warm fresh pita dipped in golden olive oil and sweet pomegranate molasses, through to the freshest seafood and softest lamb, Zaytinya creates a feast for the senses.

    Showcasing the romance and history of the region—the foods, folklore, and philosophy of sharing a meal—but with an innovative and elegant spin that is essential to José’s way of cooking and eating, Zaytinya brings the stories to life of the people, places, and ingredients that are crucial to the way so many of us want to eat today. Featuring modern twists on classic styles and techniques, Zaytinya is replete with the stories and photographs that José and his team have collected as they have traveled, learning from award-winning chefs but also the street vendors, farmers, and cheesemakers that bring these food cultures to life.

    Filled with over 150 recipes and suggested menus for hosting a dinner party or putting together a quick weeknight meal; sidebars with descriptions of techniques; and instructions on handling ingredients, Zaytinya will help home cooks easily execute the most beloved recipes from the restaurant’s menus.
