    This is the first cookbook that has ever BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES, it's really that beautiful. So far, the recipes I've made have all been delicious, authentic, and accessible (as long as you have a well-stocked Middle Eastern pantry - pomegranate molasses and sumac are essential!). The food photography is the most gorgeous I've ever seen, and the pictures of Syria are stunning. The vignettes before each chapter, most about growing up in Syria, were clearly written with so much love.

The food photography is the most gorgeous I've ever seen, and the pictures of Syria are stunning. The vignettes before each chapter, most about growing up in Syria, were clearly written with so much love. For Anas Atassi, food is the centerpiece of community, of family, of all life's celebrations. I can't wait to make everything in here - I'm a pescatarian and this book is VERY pescatarian-friendly, almost everything is plant-based and if not, easily adaptable. I've only made a few recipes so far, but I recommend the musabaha and muhammara!
