Traditional Kurdish Food is perhaps the most comprehensive book about Kurdish culinary heritage - and one of the only Kurdish cookery books available in the English language. With her straightforward and easy to follow style, Ala Barzinji proves an enlightening guide to the Kurdish culinary tradition, as well as providing a number of delightful additions to any cook's repertoire. Kurdish food represents a blend of Indo-European styles, but is distinctive because of its focus on fresh ingredients and it's variety of spices and herbs that gives the cuisine its own special tastes. The recipes are grouped into eight categories. Some of the recipes are perfect for special occasions and require more time and patience to compile, others are quick and easy and perfect for weekdays. Beautiful photos show how the food looks when finished and gives some ideas for presentation. The perfect cookbook for anyone keen to experience new food and cultures and who wants to explore newly presented cuisine beyond the Middle East from its original source.
