National Geographic Traveller Best New Cookbook

E xperience the wonderful flavors of Ethiopia and Chef Yohanis'' dazzling collection of recipes.

Ethiopia stands as a land apart: never colonized, it celebrates ancient traditions. The fascinatingly distinct cuisine is influenced by a history enriched with a religious mix of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, as well as some of the most fertile land on the continent.

In this cookbook, Ethiopia''s gourmet guru seeks to spread love for the country’s cuisine. After working as a chef around the world, Yohanis Gebreyesus decided it was time to go home and put his skills to showing off what his home country has to offer. Now, he''s dedicating his work to opening the world''s eyes to Ethiopian cuisine.

The delicious dishes featured here include Doro Wat, chicken stewed with berbere spice, Siga Tibs, flashfried beef, and Asa Shorba, a hearty spiced fish soup, plus vegetarian dishes such as Gomen, collard greens with ginger and garlic, Azifa, green lentil salad, and Dinich Alicha, potatoes and carrots in an onion turmeric sauce.

Along with photography of the stunning landscapes and vibrant artisans of Ethiopia—combined with insightful cultural and historical details—this book demonstrates why Ethiopian food should be considered one of the world’s most singular and enchanting cuisines.

Review

“Chef Yohanis’ commitment to Ethiopian cuisine is rooted in protecting the history of the food and its preparation, which includes the produce, especially the spices… Emerging as a culinary star in Ethiopia, he sheds light on the nation’s diverse palate.” —Cuisine Noir

“Chef Yohanis Gebreyesus has become known in his hometown of Addis Ababa for his healthy Ethiopian cooking. This volume features dozens of Gebreyesus’s recipes inspired by Ethiopa’s truly singular cuisine, from doro wat (spiced chicken stew) and yeassa alichia (curried fish stew) to veggie options including gomen (collard greens with ginger and garlic).” —National Geographic Traveller Best New Cookbook

Through its photo-filled pages of food, landscapes, architecture and scenes of daily life, Yohanis Gebreyesus''s cookbook captures the essence of Ethiopia. A French-trained chef who worked in California before returning to Addis Ababa, Yohanis presents a country where eating is ''a moment of sharing, of caring, and of showing respect for one another.'' You may recognize some Ethiopian basics, like the spice blend berbere and gluten-free staple, injera, but they''re just the tip of the iceberg. Delve deeper and learn to make essentials like Spiced Clarified Butter, Gomen (Collard Greens with Onions and Fresh Ginger) and Doro Wat (Slow-Cooked Spicy Chicken with Hard-Boiled Eggs). With the addition of contemporary dishes like Teff Tagliatelle with Sprouted Fenugreek and Carrots, Yohanis is helping put Ethiopia on America''s culinary radar.

Yohanis Gebreyesus''s book, with its detailed and clear recipes, is a wonderful introduction to an ancient cuisine '' Ethiopia: Recipes and Traditions from the Horn of Africa is both an educational and an inspirational addition to culinary libraries '' Beautiful accompanying photographs capture the essence and spirit of the nation and its food.

"Ethiopia-born Gebreyesus, who trained at the Paul Bocuse Institute in Lyon and hosts a cooking show in Addis Ababa, offers a primer on the food and culture of his native country. Thoughtfully, he provides two versions of an Ethiopian staple, the bubble-dotted teff-flour crepe injeraa traditional one that takes a week to ferment and a quick version ready in a day. He offers a discourse on niter kebbeh, spiced clarified butter that is €˜the central ingredient in the local cuisine,'' and is infused with cardamom, coriander, and nigella seeds. Legumes are ground into flour that is cooked into a porridge or stewed with okra and then eaten with pinches of genfo, a giant cornmeal dumpling. Sidebars cover such topics as vegan "fasting meals€ and kurt, a beef platter that highlights the meat of local breeds. Raw beefa centuries-old tradition that came about when soldiers didn''t dare draw attention by lighting firesappears with dipping sauces and tossed in spiced butter. Snacks include cubes of toasted barley flour and buttery green coffee beans. The recipes make for fascinating reading. Even the most well-traveled cook is likely to encounter something new in this informative volume.

"An illuminating look at the country''s wide-ranging cuisine '' Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, author Yohanis Gebreyesus trained in France and cooked in California before returning home. His book, with striking photography of everyday life, provides historical context through the lens of festive and everyday recipes for a deep dive into a cuisine beyond the restaurant menu.

I''m so incredibly glad that an Ethiopian decided to collect our recipes and tell our own tradition using our voice. As a diapsora, I''ve always struggled with keeping track of my grandmother and mothers way in the kitchen - from translating their names of so many spices into english and remembering their directions for how to make iconic dishes. This book is truly a gift. A beautiful way to preserve our culture for the generations born and raised abroad, and a beautiful visual journey for those unfamiliar with the cultural and culinary richness of our nation.

I HIGHLY recommend this book based on what I''ve tried so far. First of all, the explanations of the dishes are really interesting and educational. I read through most of the book before making my first attempt selections, and the details about ingredients was also really useful. While some of the spices are not going to be found at everyday grocery stores, it is WELL worth the investment to visit a spice store or order them online.

As for the dishes, I made (for three people and also leftover lunch next day) the collard greens, the pumpkin stew (but with butternut squash), the yellow split peas and the doro wat chicken. Plus, I made the one-day injera recipe. Everything was truly outstanding, and we all agreed it was among our top favorite home cooked meals ever. I love cooking and I definitely worked on this meal for several hours, but it certainly paid off (and obviously making one or two dishes is less time consuming than four). Not to mention the book itself has beautiful photographs and displays nicely on our kitchen cart shelf.

I also applaud the author. Despite that I''ve only eaten Ethiopian food maybe a dozen times in my life, the recipes felt accessible but also authentic. If you''re looking to create some next-level showstopper meals, this book is for you. Very happy with this purchase and can''t wait to try more.

We''re enjoying this book. You can find some Ethiopian recipes scattered around the web, but it''s nice to have a good book with an index, pictures, and explanation for things an American monoglot might not be familiar with. If you have no spices, there will be a big investment in the front end of your cooking. However, for more specialized spices, the book helpfully offers alternatives commonly available. We''ve dog-eared a number of recipes for the upcoming weeks, and we''re really looking forward to it. Early dishes have been quite successful. We''re no strangers to Indian, Mediterranean, Thai cuisine... and this book offers a lot of newness!

This is a beautiful book. It is written and illustrated with love, respect and vast knowledge but, sadly, most of the recipes really aren''t feasible in a domestic kitchen for those not infused in the ways of Ethiopian cuisine. It is a brave and ambitious cook who will take these recipes on and unfortunately I am not that cook. Regretfully, I returned the book for a refund.
