Description

WINNER OF THE JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL COOKBOOK AWARD

NAMED A MOST ANTICIPATED COOKBOOK OF SPRING 2018 BY BON APPETIT, FOOD & WINE, EPICURIOUS, TASTING TABLE, ESQUIRE, GLOBE & MAIL, and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

[Helou's] range of knowledge and unparalleled authority make her just the kind of cook you want by your side when baking a Moroccan flatbread, preparing an Indonesian satay and anything else along the way.-- Yotam Ottolenghi

A richly colorful and exceptionally varied cookbook of timeless recipes from across the Islamic world

In Feast, award-winning chef Anissa Helou--an authority on the cooking of North Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East--shares her extraordinary range of beloved, time-tested recipes and stories from cuisines throughout the Muslim world.

Helou has lived and traveled widely in this region, from Egypt to Syria, Iran to Indonesia, gathering some of its finest and most flavorful recipes for bread, rice, meats, fish, spices, and sweets. With sweeping knowledge and vision, Helou delves into the enormous variety of dishes associated with Arab, Persian, Mughal (or South Asian), and North African cooking, collecting favorites like biryani or Turkish kebabs along with lesser known specialties such as Zanzibari grilled fish in coconut sauce or Tunisian chickpea soup. Suffused with history, brought to life with stunning photographs, and inflected by Helou's humor, charm, and sophistication, Feast is an indispensable addition to the culinary canon featuring some of the world's most inventive cultures and peoples.
