In Stuffed Vine Leaves Saved My Life, Nadia Sawalha offers an authentic taste of the family kitchen. Growing up in an Anglo-Arab home, she learned, from an early age, the importance of feeding your family fabulous food. The mantra was always 'Good food, cooked with love, feeds the soul as well as the body.'

Every recipe in this book has already been enjoyed at the Sawalha kitchen table, having either been passed down through the generations or created by Nadia for her family and friends - from the Great Mussakhan, a delicious dish of roasted chicken, onion and spices, to her own must-try recipe for fabulous falafels. But there is always one key ingredient - every dish must have a story.

These stories, woven around the recipes, are peppered with the voices of a long and eccentric cast of family members. Just by opening the pages and dipping in, you'll feel as if you've been invited to one of the noisiest, funniest and tastiest family meals around.
