Suzanne Zeidy grew up in a household that loved to cook. Every Friday her Aunt Alba would round up the extended family for a huge Egyptian-style supper, where they would gossip, laugh and feast on traditional home-style cooking. In Cairo Kitchen, Suzanne shares the classics that ignited her love of food, as well as her more modern recipes. A combination of authentic street food and delicious home-style cooking, this is modern Middle Eastern food, all set against the exotic, vibrant backdrop of Cairo. // Try her stuffed vine leaves, home-style beef kofta stew and age-old recipes for breads. Her modern dishes are classics reinterpreted in a fresh and original way - try quail on quinoa tabboula or seared sea bass on baba ghanoush and a rice kofta served on vermicelli noodles. The chapter on pickles and preserves will transform any dish into a mouthwatering Middle Eastern-style delicacy, and the sweets, such as Halawa truffles, are irresistible. Middle Eastern food is made for sharing, and Cairo Kitchen is filled with stand-out recipes, perfect for any gathering. Illustrated throughout with stunning pictures by award-winning photographer Jonathan Gregson, this stylish cookbook is a celebration of Cairo and its wonderful food.
