Staff Reviews

Fight ISIS with your forks! From Aleppo’s place on the Silk Road, it has a long history of multicultural food exchanges, reflected in the sheer variety of flavors and recipes collected. ISIS is tearing Syria apart, destroying cultural artifacts and trying to destroy entire cultures. This enormous treasure of a cookbook is a compilation of not just Aleppo recipes, but a documentation of its ancient food culture. Along with the wonderful, well-explained recipes (this is a massive cookbook with a recipe for any course, formality level, or to appease any eater—flip through it and see for yourself!), this book offers stunning photography not just of the food but also of the city markets. It is an easy-to-use encyclopedia of Aleppo’s broad, marvelous cuisine that will leave your dinner guests in awe, and it gave me a new appreciation for the flowering quince in my own backyard!
