There’s just something about the name “Persia” that seduces us. We are drawn to the flavors and aromas. Mint, cumin, cinnamon, oranges, pomegranates, dates and honey are ingredients we like add to many of our everyday dishes. Aside from Melanie’s coming of age tour to Israel as a teenager, we’ve only traveled to the Middle East by way of our palates and the few restaurants we’ve experienced here in the USA. One of our favorites is recent JBF Award Winner Shaya in New Orleans.
Lucky for us a book entitled, “SIROCCO: Fabulous Flavors form The Middle East” transports us and offers us new ways to accent our food at home. Dubbed “the golden girl of Persian cooking,” Sabrina Ghayour is a self-taught cook, food writer and host of the popular Sabrina’s Kitchen Club in London. Her first book was “Persiana: Recipes from the Middle East & Beyond.” In SIROCCO Sabrina draws on her Iranian heritage and features dishes with a modern twist integrating African spices and Mediterranean staples.
A sirocco is a hot, dry wind that blows from northern Africa through the Mediterranean and southern Europe. Sabrina’s SIROCCO spreads the fragrant flavors of this region throughout her recipes. We look forward to visiting with Sabrina to discus her book, supper club and the dishes that inspire her.
Meet Sabrina Ghayour and learn about the seductive flavors of modern Iran (ancient Persia) and learn how to incorporate them into your home cooked meals. Wednesday, May 11, 2pmET on The Connected Table LIVE! at W4CY.com. This show will be permanently available on demand at iHeart.com and the free iHeart App.
