by Silvena Rowe
In Britain, Silvena Rowe is a bit of a rock star, having made her mark in television, restaurants, and food writing. In her newest tome, the Bulgarian-born chef explores eastern Mediterranean countries like Jordan and Turkey, with recipes for everything from mezze to mains. Dishes such as Veal, Sour Cherry, and Almond Stuffed Vine Leaves and Aleppo Pepper Marinated Chicken Kebabs marry succulence and spice, while a smattering of fables, poems, and stories lend this book depth and perspective. It’s a romantic ode to the beautiful traditions of a region that’s often overlooked and undercooked.
