Sumac: Recipes and Stories from Syria

Description

Sumac is an evocative and inspiring food journey that offers a glimpse into Syrian food culture's deep historical roots, which through millennia of cultural traditions and neighbouring influences have been shared and shaped to perfection. 

'With this book, I hope to build a bridge between Syrian culture and the rest of the world, with food as common denominator. But even more, I hope that Sumac will present a positive image of my country, in spite of all of the unfortunate events now taking place in Syria.' - Anas Atassi

Family. The heart of the home. The kitchen. The mother; whom ever she may be.  Passing on a legacy of a place that was the hub of the gastronomic world. May she return once again from dark times. But until then, enjoy this book which takes you into a journey into the lives of Syrians, before the war, remembering home, the best way they know how, through the dinner table of their ancestors. This book is a delight and a celebration of everything that symbolises hope and connection. You just want to cook everything in it." Joudie Kalla, author of Palestine on a Plate
