There are many Hilchos Brochos (on food) seforim for Ashkenazim such as Halachos of Brochos, The Laws of B'rachos, etc.

What are examples of English Brachos seforim that sefardim could use? (in other words, seforim that follow sefardi psak)

Obviously, the premise of this question is highly related to this question (which has yet to get an answer)...

    I assume you mean modern ones that address modern food-production techniques, as opposed to things like Kaf Hachayim and Hapardes and Ben Ish Chay?

  • @msh210 Yes, you are correct. Similar to the examples I gave (i.e. that have comprehensive coverage)

Birchot Eliyahu by Yedidi Rabbi Eliyahu Yahud Shalita


User Deuteronomy on /r/Judaism suggested the volume of Yalkut Yosef on Brachot.

  • I don't think it answers the question, judging by the comment exchange.

  • @SethJ, I'm not sure what you mean. The only comments (presently) are a side discussion about the Yalkut Yosef in general. I don't see anything that either further supports or challenges the Brachot volume's utility as a contemporary Sefaradic book on the laws of brachot.

  • Sorry, I meant the comments on our question above. He is looking for a modern book that deals with consumer products as well as general foods.

  • @IsaacMoses Well I haven't taken a look at it yet, but I doubt it has a list of actual foods. Probably more or less rules.

Birkhot Shamayim by Rabbi Yosef Dweck provides an index of what Berachot to make on which foods, and the Sephardi laws of Berakhot.
