9780062071590: Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume: Cuisine of the Eastern Mediterranean

Silvena Rowe invites you on a journey through Oriental Mediterranean history, sampling some of the best-kept secrets of the culinary world along the way. The olive, rosemary and basil of the west are here combined with the exotic spices of the east, for a contemporary cuisine of surprising lightness and variety - proof, if proof were needed, that there is more to the Mediterranean than just Italy and France.

It's food for sharing, food for healthy living, food for celebrating - and above all it's delicious! Silvena Rowe gives her own modern twist to the classic recipes of a rich tradition, following in the footsteps of the great Ottoman chefs who combined the sweet and the sour, the fresh and the dried, the honey and cinnamon, saffron and sumac, scented rose and orange flower waters.

Presenting mouth-watering recipes alongside stunning photography, Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume brings to life the natural beauty and irresistible flavours of the Eastern Mediterranean.

Review:

"The pages are so packed with Silvena's characteristic enthusiasm and irresistible passion, I defy anyone to resist." (Heston Blumenthal)

"Gloriously presented recipes from lesser-known regions of the eastern Mediterranean which draw on Rowe's Ottoman heritage and her passion for the region, as she weaves poetry, fairy tale and history into her cookbook. Another one for fans of the Moro and Ottolenghi cookbooks to savour." ( Editor’s Pick, Bookseller)

"Filled with recipes that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to eat." ( Daily Mail)

"This enticingly photographed book is a great read and a fascinating exploration of Eastern Mediterranean food and culture." ( Delicious Magazine)

"Remarkable and seductively beautiful" ( Adelaide Independent)

Book Description:

A delicious peek into the kitchens of the little-known region of the Eastern Mediterranean.
