An Edible Mosaic: Middle Eastern Flair with Extroardinary Flair – Review and GIVEAWAY!!
I have been reading Faith’s blog for years now, so when she asked me if I would review her new cookbook, it was a no-brainer – a resounding YES!!! And then when Brandy offered me the opportunity to take part in a Mid-East Feast to celebrate the cookbook’s release…I was wholeheartedly ALL IN.
Even though I knew I would really like Faith’s book, as I am generally a fan of Middle Eastern food, I had no idea how much I would love it. Faith’s appreciation of a culture and a cuisine that is not her own really shines through in this book. So much so, that you can’t help but get excited about each and every recipe, as she recounts where she first ate it, how it is traditionally prepared, and why she likes it so much. The book is full of personal tidbits like this, along with large, gorgeous photos and, of course…delicious recipes.
As part of the Mid-East Feast, we made the zucchini fritters, chicken tofu shawarma wraps, and the coconut semolina cake. And in case you couldn’t tell how much I gushed over everything in my posts…I enjoyed all of it. There are countless other recipes in the cookbook that I can’t wait to try, such as the mashed fava beans with olive oil, lemon juice and garlic, flatbreads, spinach turnovers, fried cauliflower with sesame parsley sauce, eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce, rose and pistachio pudding, toasted semolina pudding with cinnamon…and oh so many more.
Fabulously enough, the publishers of An Edible Mosaic have offered to give away a copy of Faith’s cookbook to one of YOU!!! The company WILL ship internationally, so this is open to my international readers. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite ethnic cuisine is.
For extra entries, pin or tweet whichever of the recipes we made for our Mid-East Feast (linked above) you would most want to try. Leave a comment telling me when you do so.
This giveaway will end on November 20th!!
