From the cover: Suzanne Zeidy grew up in a household that loved to cook. Every Friday her Aunt Alba would round up the extended family for a huge Egyptian lunch, where they would gossip, laugh and feast on traditional home-style cooking. In Cairo Kitchen, Suzanne shares the classics that ignited her love of food, as well as her modern Middle Eastern recipes, all set against the exotic, vibrant backdrop of Cairo. Try her Stuffed Vine Leaves, Beef Kofta Stew or Quail on Quinoa Tabboula. For anyone with a sweet tooth, the rich Date and Walnut cake and decadent Halawa Truffles are irresistible.
Middle Eastern food is made for sharing, and Cairo Kitchen is filled with standout recipes, perfect for any gathering. Illustrated throughout with stunning pictures by award-winning photographer Jonathan Gregson, this stylish cookbook is a celebration of Cairo and its wonderful food.
