Samaritan Cookbook

A Culinary Odyssey from the Ancient Israelites to the Modern Mediterranean

Hi <<First Name>>,

Most people have heard Jesus' Parable of the Good Samaritan, but few realize that this ancient community is once again going strong today—much less tasted or prepared any of their cuisine. Despite almost fading from the history books, the Samaritan way of life has survived 3,000 years in the Holy Land. They are the keepers of an extraordinarily old culture, despite millennia of hardship.

The first-ever Samaritan Cookbook brings you on an adventure into the little-known world of Samaritan food and drink. We journey to both halves of the community: in Holon, outside Tel Aviv; and Kiryat Luza, on the footsteps of Mount Gerizim, near Nablus.

From hummus and avocado sesame dip to lamb meatballs with pine nuts and chicken with za’atar, the dishes are a unique blend of Mediterranean traditions, reflecting the flavors and spices of contemporary Arabic and ancient Levantine neighbors.

Our unique story is that the cuisine is healthy food bringing many peoples together, especially Palestinians and Israelis. Whether Muslim or Christian, Jewish or Samaritan, these dishes unite all those who indulge!

Praise for Samaritan Cookbook

“Benyamim Tsedaka’s Samaritan Cookbook is a love letter to his people and his culture. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs and filled with Samaritan recipes preserved within the author's family, this volume is a true tour de force that successfully invites readers into the Samaritan world and makes them feel like honored and welcome guests.”
Martin S. Cohen, Rabbi, Shelter Rock Jewish Center, Roslyn, New York

“Being raised in the Amish culture I understand the importance of a cultural cookbook. Every Amish Mennonite home had a copy of the ‘Mennonite Cookbook.’ The Samaritan Cookbook is not just a book of recipes but a touchstone that reaches back centuries to the way things were prepared in biblical times. The addition of the touching photographs, descriptions of traditions, and historical facts makes this an excellent and tasty reference to the beautiful and ancient land of the Samaritan people.”
Anne Beiler, founder of Auntie Anne’s Pretzels
