Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Looking to capture the unique flavors and relaxed atmosphere of the Eastern Mediterranean, London-based chef and food writer Rowe (Purple Citrus and Sweet Perfume) groups 100-plus small dishes and street foods into five flavor-themed chapters (e.g., Za'atar and Saffron, Chili and Cumin, Cardamom and Honey). Homemade spice blends, like Almond and Cumin Dukkah and Lemon Thyme Za'atar, are aromatic and subtle, and elegant dishes, like Kadaifi Wrapped Goat's Cheese and Cardamom Figs with Thyme Flowers, come together more quickly than their titles might suggest. VERDICT Highly recommended for readers looking to explore new spices.
