For those who have never had the privilege of indulging in middle eastern cuisine you are in for a treat with pomegranates & Pine Nuts. The region is known for its aromatic and flavorful dishes. I was lucky enough to find a restaurant in Atlanta that served authentic middle-eastern cuisine.
We learn the life history of Bethany Kehdy from when she went to live with her father to Lebanon at the age of 4, then to live her mother in Houston when war ravaged her homeland. She would later return to her father's homeland. Her heritage was in both worlds and we benefit because of this. She shares her father's rich culinary history with us through her recipes.
Some of the ingredients will need to be found at a specialty stores or if you are lucky you will have a middle eastern market in your neighborhood. For the most part you can find these ingredients and keep them on hand. Believe me it is worth the effort to obtain the odd spice. You will fall in love with the flavors and taste a whole new world. Your family will thank you. There is a world out there to discover so why not start with your stomach.
Everything from the simple Venison and Sour Cherry Nest to Slumbering Camomile Chicken to Semolina Pancakes (So delicious!). These are just three of the many recipes to tempt you, but they are easy to follow recipes so even the newest person to the kitchen will be able to produce the same results that look just like the beautifully displayed ones found throughout the cookbook. Take a look at Pomegranates and Pine Nuts today. You will be salivating before you get to the checkout.
