Modern Flavours of Arabia serves up a generous helping of tradition and good eating from the kitchen of Suzanne Husseini. Authentic Arabian dishes inspired by Suzanne's fondest food memories are blended with an elegant, modern take: crepes are speckled with pistachios and sweetened with rose syrup, and scones are enhanced with dates, orange and cardamom. The classics are here too: tabbouleh, hummus, shawarma and homemade labneh. These are the foods that Suzanne loves to cook for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and she wants us to love making them, when recreating the same flavours at home. Luscious photography, warm personal stories and ideas on how to serve each dish make Modern Flavours of Arabia a feast for the palate as well as for the eyes.
