Pomegranates and pistachios. Floral waters and cinnamon. Bulgur wheat, lentils, and succulent lamb. These lush flavors of Maureen Abood's childhood, growing up as a Lebanese-American in Michigan, inspired Maureen to launch her award-winning blog, Rose Water & Orange Blossoms. Here she revisits the recipes she was reared on, exploring her heritage through its most-beloved foods and chronicling her riffs on traditional cuisine. Her colorful culinary guides, from grandparents to parents, cousins, and aunts, come alive in her stories like the heady aromas of the dishes passed from their hands to hers.

Taking an ingredient-focused approach that makes the most of every season's bounty, Maureen presents more than 100 irresistible recipes that will delight readers with their evocative flavors: Spiced Lamb Kofta Burgers, Avocado Tabbouleh in Little Gems, and Pomegranate Rose Sorbet. Weaved throughout are the stories of Maureen's Lebanese-American upbringing, the path that led her to culinary school and to launch her blog, and life in Harbor Springs, her lakeside Michigan town.

Souk: Feasting at the Mezze Table

Souk: Feasting at the Mezze Table Lowest new price: $20.99
Lowest used price: $22.92
List price: $35.00
Author: Nadia Zerouali

The souk, or marketplace, is the beating heart of Arabic cuisine and culture—this book celebrates the generosity of this rich food culture.

The word mezze stems from the Arabic term tamazzaza—a single word that broadly embraces the idea of enjoying small portions of food and taking the time to indulge one’s taste buds, eyes, and nose by exposing them to a wide range of aromas and flavors. A complete mezze table is formed when many of these warm and cold dishes are presented together, as a meal in itself.

The mezze culture originated in the Ottoman Empire and can be found in the whole of the Levantine Mediterranean: from Greece and Cyprus to Turkey, Palestine, Jordan, and Syria. But it is Lebanon, the cultural home of the authors, which has really developed and is famed for the richest, most extensive, and most sophisticated mezze culture.

In addition to the 100 classic and contemporary mezze recipes, Souk also delves into the personal stories and reminiscences about this food tradition and the families and friends the authors meet along the way. Eating mezze is a social event, wrapped in warmth and coziness, and spiced with waves of laughter and noisy chatter.

The Healthy Jewish Kitchen: Fresh, Contemporary Recipes for Every Occasion

The Healthy Jewish Kitchen: Fresh, Contemporary Recipes for Every Occasion Lowest new price: $10.52
Lowest used price: $9.29
List price: $24.95
Author: Paula Shoyer

From Kosher classics to gourmet international dishes, this is Jewish soul food . . . finally made healthy!

Too often, Jewish cookbooks still feature many recipes that lack whole grains and include too much salt, fat, sugar, and processed foods. But Paula Shoyer’s delicious take on Jewish cooking is different: she uses only natural ingredients and offers a fresh, nutrient-dense spin on every dish. Here you’ll find very little frying, and no margarine, frozen puff pastry, soup stocks and powders, and most jarred sauces. More than 60 recipes recipes include both Sephardic and Ashkenazy Jewish classics (Israeli Herb and Almond Salad, Sourdough Challah, Tzimmes Puree, Potato and Scallion Latkes, Schnitzel with Nut Crust) as well as American and international dishes that extend beyond the Jewish culinary world. In Shoyer’s words: “This book has food you’ll recognize, because you still want to feel connected to your ancestors’ kitchens, but I’ve made it more nutritious and often easier to make.”
 
The array of delicious international dishes includes:
Arroz con Pollo with Brown Rice and Salsa Verde * Korean Bibimbap with Tofu * Bouillabaisse  *  Cambodian Spring Rolls with Lime Chili and Peanut Dipping Sauce *  Feijoada (Brazilian Cholent with Collard Greens and Farofa)  *  Fish Tacos with Cilantro Lime Rice *  Indian Barbecue Chicken * Japanese Lamb Chops  *  Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup  *  and much more!

Aromas of Aleppo: The Legendary Cuisine of Syrian Jews

Aromas of Aleppo: The Legendary Cuisine of Syrian Jews Lowest new price: $32.43
Lowest used price: $10.71
List price: $49.99
Author: Poopa Dweck
Brand: Harper Collins

When the Aleppian Jewish community migrated from the ancient city of Aleppo in historic Syria and settled in New York and Latin American cities in the early 20th century, it brought its rich cuisine and vibrant culture. Most Syrian recipes and traditions, however, were not written down and existed only in the minds of older generations. Poopa Dweck, a first generation Syrian–Jewish American, has devoted much of her life to preserving and celebrating her community's centuries–old legacy.

Dweck relates the history and culture of her community through its extraordinary cuisine, offering more than 180 exciting ethnic recipes with tantalizing photos and describing the unique customs that the Aleppian Jewish community observes during holidays and lifecycle events. Among the irresistible recipes are:


•Bazargan–Tangy Tamarind Bulgur Salad


•Shurbat Addes–Hearty Red Lentil Soup with Garlic and Coriander


•Kibbeh–Stuffed Syrian Meatballs with Ground Rice


•Samak b'Batata–Baked Middle Eastern Whole Fish with Potatoes


•Sambousak–Buttery Cheese–Filled Sesame Pastries


•Eras bi'Ajweh–Date–Filled Crescents


•Chai Na'na–Refreshing Mint Tea

Like mainstream Middle Eastern cuisines, Aleppian Jewish dishes are alive with flavor and healthful ingredients–featuring whole grains, vegetables, legumes, and olive oil–but with their own distinct cultural influences. In Aromas of Aleppo, cooks will discover the best of Poopa Dweck's recipes, which gracefully combine Mediterranean and Levantine influences, and range from small delights (or maza) to daily meals and regal holiday feasts–such as the twelve–course Passover seder.
