In 2014, passionate cooks and friends Itab Azzam and Dina Mousawi were introduced to dozens of Syrian women refugees through their nonprofit theater project, and in working together, the talk turned naturally to food. The recipes and stories of this book, with 100 evocative accompanying photos, is the result of those friendships. From Hot Yogurt Soup with Turmeric to Cherry Meatballs, the 100 recipes are a delicious celebration of the unique taste, culture, and food of Syria. Middle Eastern food continues to be hugely popular, yet Syrian food is little-known outside of the area, though its tomatoes, lemons, pomegranates, and parsley bear many similarities to Israeli, Lebanese, and even Greek food. The ingredients will be familiar, but the finished dishes a delicious surprise-and an important marker of the foods of home. The women's stories are sprinkled throughout the book, giving depth and color to their most beloved family recipes, made in Syrian homes from Beirut to Berlin, and all across the world. Their story is one of bravery, empowerment, and resilience, showing that love of home and family can live on, no matter where you gather to break bread.
