Fast Food From the Eastern MediterraneanBook - 2013
Following her acclaimed Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume, Silvena Rowe turns her focus to the delicious small dishes that you would find in the bustling street market of Damascus or Istanbul-koftas, falafels, and pilafs-as well as delicious desserts such as vanilla baklava and chocolate and pistachio mousse. In this treasure trove of a book she presents 100 light, enticing new recipes, perfectly balanced for mezze-style meals. This is a cuisine both for celebrating and for sharing. Silvena Rowe has an encyclopedic knowledge of the food and culinary traditions of the eastern Mediterranean. Her cooking is light and the presentation of her dishes is elegant and sophisticated, while the flavors are powerful and the textures balanced. Her enthusiasm for the food of her heritage is evident on every page.
