For an eclectic mix of Middle Eastern food with a modern twist check out awesome new cookbook Olives, Lemons and Za’atar.
Here at ETL we are big fans of Middle Eastern food, from Hummus to Labneh we just can’t get enough of it! Therefore it’s no big surprise that we’ve been drooling over the pages of Rawia Bishara’s beautiful new cookbook Olives, lemons and Za’atar.
Taking inspiration from her cosmopolitan childhood growing up in New York and holidaying in the Med, Rawia has created a book full of cross-cultural cooking.
With chapters dedicated to breakfast, mezze, salads, soups and stews, main courses, sides, pickles and sauces and desserts you’re guaranteed to find something to satisfy your spice craving.
For a fresh but filling salad the classic tabbouleh is a must try, packed with fragrant parsley and sweet plum tomatoes, no mezze would be complete without it! Or for the ultimate winter warmer the spiced lamb shanks are perfect. Tender slow cooked meat in a richly spiced sauce, all that’s needed is a crispy warmed flatbread and you have the ultimate comfort food.
