Description

Here is the collection of treasured family recipes that were brought to this country at the turn of the century by the authors' grandparents, immigrants from Aleppo, Syria. All of these recipes are reproductions of meals still prepared in Syria today. While some dishes (like hummus) are prevalent throughout the Middle East, the tastes of Aleppo are unique in their particular mix of spices and textures. This cuisine is also particularly healthy, with many vegetarian recipes reflecting the sophistication.
