Anissa Helou’s recent post on Turkish ice cream was the most interesting read of the week for me. Who knew ice cream could be stretchy and chewy?  It sounds fascinating, and I hope I get the chance to taste some one day.

Ice cream aside, if you’re interested in the cuisines of the Eastern Mediterranean, Helou’s blog is a must-read. Born in Beirut to a Lebanese mother and Syrian father, Helou now makes her home in London where she writes and teaches about the cooking of the region (you can learn more about her on her Web site). She also travels extensively there, and her blog recounts her adventures and culinary discoveries. I love the pictures of the people and ingredients she encounters, and her straightforward writing style. My favorite sentence so far: “As many of you know, I’ve been having great fun eating and cooking camel recently.”
