An inspiring collection of recipes from one of the world's oldest cities.
It is hardly surprising that Aleppo, one of the world's oldest inhabited cities, is also home to one of the world's most distinguished and vibrant cuisines. Surrounded by fertile lands and located at the end of the Silk Road, Aleppo was a food capital long before Paris, Rome or New York. Here, one of the Arab world's most renowned chefs unlocks the secrets to this distinctive cuisine. Featuring over 200 irresistible regional recipes, such as Chili and Garlic Kebab, Syrian Fishcakes, Semolina and Butter Pudding, and the queen of the mezze table, Red Pepper and Walnut Spread, The Aleppo Cookbook is a beautiful introduction to the Syrian table.
