Format: Hardcover
I recently purchased this book after discovering it on Amazon.com and reading the wealth of positive customer reviews. This book is not only a beautiful coffee table book, but the recipes I've tried so far (about 9) were simple and turned out absolutely delicious. Of note, I already had a wonderful recipe for Basbusa, but the one in this book tasted far superior! It was the best I've ever tasted. I ad libbed and added just before serving; sliced strawberries, frozen vanilla yogurt and a splach of Soho liqueur (Lychee flavoured). The Mujedrah (rice and brown lentils with caramelized onions) was so simple, yet the flavours were superb - better than others I've tasted. One of my new favorites is the Keftes (Tamarind-stewed meatballs). This is so simple and quick to make, yet so delicious.

The photos and explanations given in this book are superb. The stories and history Ms. Dweck shares of her family and the Syrian Jews make this extraordinary book even more remarkable. I pick this book up over and over again for both the history, customs and cultural information as well as for new recipe ideas.

I also own Claudia Roden's 'The Book of Jewish Food' and noted that both Ms. Dweck and Ms. Roden seem to share the same family name (Phonetically). Ms. Roden's family originates also from Aleppo and the family name is 'Douek'. Although spelled differently, the pronunciation is the same. Perhaps these two great ladies of culinary writing and expertise are related?

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in expanding their cooking experience and library.

The recipes are concise and complete, easy to follow, and cover all what I remember of jewish sirian food. Excellent book. I've been able to reproduce almost exactly some of the tastes and food I ate when I was a child. Very good photos. The book also has a very interesting introduction regarding the jews in Siria.
