This week, we’re changing it up with a book review! We review The Culinary Crescent: A History of Middle Eastern Cuisine by Peter Heine, which gives readers a lovely overview of the long and storied history of food in the Middle East and among Muslim societies stretching from Turkey to India. We discuss recipes, Faye gives a rundown of her favorite anecdotes, and we discover some interesting overlaps in storytelling.
Special thanks to Clare Roberts of Gingko Press Publishing for sending us the book and to Peter Heine for writing a delightful book. If you would like to purchase the book, you can find it here: https://www.gingko.org.uk/title/the-culinary-crescent/
