A Taste of Greece: Recipes, Cuisine & Culture Lowest new price: $19.00
Lowest used price: $23.04
List price: $35.00
Author: Princess Tatiana and Diana Farr Louis
Brand: imusti

NOT JUST ANOTHER COOKBOOK, A Taste of Greece could have been called For the Love of Greece, as it became a project that brought together well-known personalities from across the world who all share a special bond with this ever fascinating Mediterranean country. They gave us their favorite recipes, told us of their much-loved foods, and opened their hearts as they shared their memories and revealed what Greece means to them. A Taste of Greece represents a collaborative effort between HRH Princess Tatiana, who has made Athens her home since 2013; Diana Farr Louis, a New Yorker who first came to Greece in 1963; and the Athens-based NGO BOROUME (“We Can”). Founded in 2011, BOROUME is the only nonprofit organization in Greece dedicated to reducing food waste and fighting malnutrition at the same time, by creating networks of food donors and receivers throughout the country. Through this book, you will see, feel, and taste a Greece that may be new to you. Most importantly, you will join a global community of active citizens who are eager to support the country they love. All proceeds from this book’s sale will support BOROUME in supplying meals for still more families and building a closer sense of community and solidarity.



Food. It fuels our body and nourishes our soul. Shared, it fosters a mysterious sense of intimacy, even among strangers. Universal, it remains unique to each country, an essential element of the cultural heritage that links present and past through traditions and memories. A single bite can transport us both round the world and back in time. What else but food can awaken and create such lasting memories and deep emotions? It is not by chance that, for A Taste of Greece, over 30 well-known international personalities have chosen to share their favorite local food recipes to give life to their personal connection with this beautiful Mediterranean country and shed light on its multifaceted appeal. Their stories and recipes illustrated by stunning photos will give you a real appreciation of Greek cuisine, age-old traditions, and a fascinating contemporary culture. We trust that you will become as enamored of the country and its people as they are!

Our Syria: Recipes from Home

Our Syria: Recipes from Home Lowest new price: $13.72
Lowest used price: $13.72
List price: $30.00
Author: Dina Mousawi

Syria is where food, memory, and resilience collide: recreate the flavors of this beautiful country in Our Syria, for delicious meals anywhere in the world.

Syria has always been the meeting point for the most delicious flavors from East and West, where spices and sweetness collide. Even now, in possibly the country's darkest hour, Syrian families in tiny apartments from Beirut to Berlin are searching out the best tomatoes, lemons, pomegranates, and parsley to evoke the memory of home, keeping their treasured food history alive across continents.

Friends and passionate cooks Itab and Dina met Syrian women in the Middle East and Europe to collect together the very best recipes from one of the world's greatest food cultures. They spent months cooking with them, learning their recipes and listening to stories of home. Recipes like the following elicit vibrant images of an ancient culture:

  • Hot Yogurt Soup
  • Fresh Thyme and Halloumi Salad
  • Lamb and Okra Stew
  • Chicken Shawarma Wraps
  • Semolina and Coconut Cake
Our Syria is a delicious celebration of the unique taste, culture, and food of Syria-and a celebration of everything that food and memory can mean to an individual, to a family, and to a nation.

Olives, Lemons & Za'atar: The Best Middle Eastern Home Cooking

Olives, Lemons & Za'atar: The Best Middle Eastern Home Cooking Lowest new price: $22.57
Lowest used price: $15.07
List price: $34.95
Author: Rawia Bishara
Brand: Kyle Cathie Limited

Rawia, in Arabic, means storyteller. And that is what I am. I tell the stories of my life's journey, culture, and family through my cooking. A delicious meal is the greatest companion to the memories we cherish most. I was born into a food-loving Palestinian-Arab family in Nazareth, a beautiful town in the southern Galilee. Though the words “organic,” “locavore,” and “sustainable” were unknown then, my parents' approach qualified on all counts. My respect for the sources of food, how it is grown and prepared, originates in my early years at home.

My grandmother had ceramic urns filled with fruity olive oil, pressed from the trees on her family's land picked by my aunts and uncles. My mother, too, made her own olive oil, and used the remaining “crude” oil to make soap; she also distilled her own vinegar, sun-dried her own herbs and fruits, made fresh batches of goat cheese, as well as sweet wine from our vineyards, and jarred jewel-colored jams from the bounty of the local orchards.


After moving to New York, I opened my restaurant Tanoreen to honor my mother and her imaginative cooking as well as the rich Middle Eastern gastronomic culture that is rarely experienced outside the region. Tanoreen is unique because it showcases Middle Eastern home cooking as I experienced it growing up. The 135 recipes in this book celebrate tradition and embrace change. I cook without rigidly following recipes, though I do respect tradition. My dishes are based on our culture's recipes that are flexible enough to accommodate both adventurous and conservative contemporary palates.


Organized by Breakfasts, Mezze, Salads, Soups and Stews, Main Courses (including vegetarian, fish, chicken, lamb and beef), Sides, Pickles and Sauces, and Desserts, in each chapter I maintain the authenticity of a dish, re-creating it as it has been made for generations; but sometimes I might opt to experiment a bit, to make the recipe more contemporary, perhaps adding a spice or offering a few shortcuts. My favorite examples of these are my preparation of Brussels Sprouts with Panko (and tahini), Spice Rubbed Braised Lamb Shank (marinated in ginger and rose buds), Tanoreen Kafta Roll, (a reconstructed classic) or Eggplant Napoleon (baba ghanouge layered between crisp eggplant and topped with basil and tomatoes). A dish like Egyptian Rice with Lamb and Pine Nuts shows this cookbook goes beyond Nazareth, and is more of a bible of Middle Eastern food, sharing my culinary journey from Nazareth to New York, with many stops in between.

On a trip to Turkey as a young woman, chef Ana Sortun fell in love with the food and learned the traditions of Turkish cooking from local women. Inspired beyond measure, Sortun opened her own restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the award-winning Oleana, where she creates her own interpretations of dishes incorporating the incredible array of delicious spices and herbs used in eastern regions of the Mediterranean.

  • Chickpea and Potato Terrine Stuffed with Pine Nuts, Spinach, Onion, and Tahini

Einat Admony is a 21st-century balaboosta (Yiddish for “perfect housewife”).She’s a mother and wife, but also a chef busy running three bustling New York City restaurants. Her debut cookbook features 140 of the recipes she cooks for the people she loves―her children, her husband, and the many friends she regularly entertains.

"I want to make every recipe in this book. . . . And you should, too!"--David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen and Ready for Dessert

Comforting breads, buns, pastries, cakes, cookies, and other baked delights from the Middle East

There's always something sweet in the oven at Honey & Co., the tiny restaurant in London where the day is marked by what comes out of the pastry section. In the morning, sticky buns are stuffed full of cherries and pistachios; loaves of rich dough are rolled with chocolate, hazelnuts, and cinnamon. Lunch is a crisp, crumbly shell of pastry filled with spiced lamb or burnt eggplant, and at teatime there are cheesecakes and fruitcakes, small cakes, and massive cookies-so many treats that it's hard to choose one. And after dinner? Poached peaches with roses, something sweet and salty drenched in orange blossom syrup, or maybe even a piece of fresh marzipan.

This is the magic of Middle Eastern soul food. This is Golden.
