Alon Shaya’s innovative New Orleans eateries have garnered the Israeli-born, Philadelphia-raised chef and restauranteur two James Beard Awards and praise from some of the world’s most prestigious culinary publications, including Bon Appétit, Saveur
, and Food & Wine
. After opening his eclectic Italian restaurant Domenica and its spinoff Pizza Domenica, he returned to his roots with his namesake Israeli restaurant, Shaya. Consisting of more than two dozen gustatory vignettes, with corresponding recipes explained with lush photos and illustrations, his new cookbook wends its way from the U.S. to Italy to Israel, ultimately returning to the American South and his beloved New Orleans.
