I actually use this book year-round, even when pomegranates aren't available at the grocery store. The author does tell you how to keep and store them, but if my whole house were a freezer, I couldn't store enough to last all year. The author lives in the Middle East, where pomegranates are plentiful, and has been a food critic and columnist for a long time. Those two qualifications probably make the difference in this book. I find a lot of pomegranate recipes are just some dish some American who recently discovered pomegrantes found out they taste good in. Kleinberg, on the other hand, went hunting down traditional uses for pomegranates in the cultures where they're a staple of the winter diet. The recipes are totally flawless (in the sense that I haven't yet found a mistake that would ruin the recipe), and everything I've tried, I've loved. There is SO much more to do with pomegranates than just toss them over desserts and salads to make them look pretty. But I didn't know that until I got this book. She even uses pomegranate juice and syrup (which you can buy at the store if you don't want to make it fresh yourself)!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I love this cookbook. I have a pomegranate tree, but except for sprinkling seeds on salads,etc, I never knew what to do with them. Well, this cookbook is the answer! The recipes are wonderful, emphasizing Persian and Middle Eastern food. The 'Walnut,Date and Pomegranate Chicken' was an outstanding successWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a refreshing book with fabulous ideas. For unique cooking recipes, try the Pomegranate Margarita and the red pepper, walnut and pomegranate dip. I've yet to find a guest who disliked a recipe I ve made from this book. The recipes are straight forward. Pomegranate seeds add a delicious, unique flavor, as well as wonderful flavor. This is a great idea as a gift for the holidays.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is a must for making the most of the beautiful pomegranates which are in season at the moment. Ann Kleinberg has created over 60 mouth-watering recipes using pomegranates. The red seeds of the pomegranates look like little jewels and turn each dish into a thing of beauty. Red Pepper, Walnut and Pomegranate dip and Quinoa Salad with Herbs, Feta and Pomegranate are two of my favourites. Exquisite. I highly recommend this book.
