'Garlic, lemons and fresh herbs...pomegranate molasses, citrus fruits...yogurt.' Bliss!

'Eat and you shall forget your worries,' a quote from Kehdy's uncle. Certainly her family influences have been extensive. Kehdy's introduction brings alive the sights and smells of the Beirut of her childhood.
Her background explanation of Middle Eastern foods illuminates the path to these culinary delights.
Pomegranate molasses is obviously a key ingredient to keep on your shelf. As is sumac.
As with any cook book there are recipes you might try and leave. Then there are others that join your staple collection to be used and reused.
Whipped humus with lamb, two of my favourite foods, add the pomegranates and I'm in seventh heaven
Corn of the cob with saffron infused butter great for corn in season served with a little difference and a whole lot of flair!
Zucchini and sumac fritters. Wow, I love sumac and now here's a new recipe to use with those zucchini that seem to never stop growing. I'm always finding one that got away and grew into a giant despite my determination to harvest them small.
Spiced lamb flatbread pizza's, Yum!
Not all the recipes are for me but there's certainly enough to make this book a worthy addition to my cookery book shelves.
