Food writer and historian
This book has many virtues - the bright Middle Eastern flavours, the clear instructions, the delightful descriptions of the trials of running a small business. But I love it most for the heady perfumes it fills the kitchen with when you cook from it: dried lime, mahleb, cardamom. These are recipes for pleasure, not for show.
A relatively new acquisition, but everything I've made has been delicious and different. I'm saving up for their baking book now.
