Details: Product Description "The Arabesque Table is full to the brim with dishes which are rooted in tradition and at the same time creatively (and deliciously!) transcend it. It is wonderful!" - Yotam Ottolenghi "A dazzling set of recipes from Reem Kassis" – Nigel Slater  "Reem Kassis's cookbooks tell of her Palestinian family, while giving a modern twist to such dishes as fatteh, lentil soup and pistaschio cake" - The Observer Food Monthly Acclaimed author Reem Kassis returns with a one-of-a-kind collection of original contemporary recipes tracing the rich history of Arab cuisine. The Arabesque Table takes inspiration from the traditional food of the Arab world, weaving Reem Kassis's historic research and cultural knowledge with her contemporary interpretations of an ancient, remarkably diverse cuisine.   In her personal, engaging voice, Reem bridges past and present to open up the world of Arabic cooking today, showcasing a mosaic of 130 delicious, accessible home recipes. Organized by primary ingredient, the recipes and vivid photographs bring the dishes to life while her narrative offers not only a sense of taste, but a sense of time and place as well. More than just a compilation of modern Arabic recipes, The Arabesque Table celebrates the evolution of Arab cuisine and the stories of cross-cultural connection it recounts, paying tribute to the history and journey that have led to this point. With the past on full display in this heavily researched and exciting book, you will find dishes from the Golden Age of Islam: like Narjissiya (a fava bean and egg hash) and  Makmoora (a layered chicken, onion and pine nut pot pie), as well as contemporary and globally inspired interpretations: like Tahini Cheesecake and Caramelized Butternut Squash Fatteh with Za'atar, revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, and exciting, but above all, reminding us of how powerful food is in defining the relationship between people, place and identity.   Review “Refreshing is …the best word to describe Ms. Kassis’s book… The Arabesque Table zooms out, examining both the history and the evolution of Arab dishes, suggesting another, richer approach to understanding food.” ― Wall Street Journal"Reem Kassis's cookbooks tell of her Palestinian family, while giving a modern twist to such dishes as fatteh, lentil soup and pistaschio cake." ―Observer Food Monthly “130 historically-traced, contemporary recipes from the Arab culture, beautifully bolstered with personal anecdotes and a fusing of the past and present.”―Forbes “Reem Kassis’s latest book weaves together history, memoir and recipes to bring the diverse food cultures of the contemporary Arab world to life.”―National Geographic Traveller FOOD “The Arabesque Table uses the traditional, diverse cuisine of the Arab world as a starting point, and offers a modern interpretation of the recipes for every table.”―Fine Dining Lovers “This book is as historically informative as it is useful for recipe inspiration… If hospitality is about creating memories and stories, there are enough tales in here to keep readers entertained and educated.” ―The Caterer “Following the success of The Palestinian Table, writer Reem Kassis has gone back in time to explore the untold tapestries of Arab food in her second cookbook” ―BA High Life   From the Back Cover A one-of-a-kind collection of original contemporary recipes from across the Arab world from acclaimed author Reem Kassis
