Tangy lemony tabbouleh, smoky, rich baba ghanouj, beautifully spiced lamb shank...the recipes in Olives, Lemons & Za'atar provide something irresistible for every occasion.
These dishes represent the flavours of Rawia's Middle Eastern childhood with recipes copied faithfully from family cookbooks (her mother's most treasured harissa), and then developed with a creative flourish of her own. Her food is deeply personal and so she includes the classics but also the Mediterranean influences that come from summer holidays in Spain and living in Bay Ridge, the old Italian neighbourhood in Brooklyn. The result is a sensational cross-cultural mix and provides you with everything you need - pickles, yogurt, bread, mezze, salads, stews etc - to enjoy the best home cooking and share the most convivial Middle Eastern hospitality.

Smorgasbook found this title to be lovely to look at and the stories where very interesting. The recipes however were brief and made huge amounts of food. There are plenty of vegetarian recipes. We suggest this book for cook book readers as it works better as a travelogue than a Middle Eastern cooking primer.

I loved this book! Lots of useful seasoning mix recipes to work with & expand flavor profiles. Got me to explore ways to find ingredients I haven't used before, which is always an adventure!
