A recipe from a cookbook with a blessing


Saha is an engaging food journey through Lebanon and Syria – a much unexplored cuisine. The title translates as ‘blessing’ which is a fitting name for such a great read.

The husband and wife team who wrote the book explore the interesting and varied food of this region, covering a wide range of undiscovered recipes that vary from the humble hummus to the regal quail stuffed with ma'ahani, baked in kadaifi with whipped Bulgarian feta and paprika oil.

This book is a must for anyone with an interest in Middle Eastern food – a real eye-opener. The vibrant pictures paint a powerful story to accompany the tales and recipes.
