The Iraqi Family Cookbook by Kay Karim
Modern Iraqi cooking relies on an abundance of fresh, seasonal produce, beans, rice, fish, and quality meats. Typical spices include cinnamon, allspice, dried lime, saffron, sumac, and turmeric. Kay Karim has collected recipes from generations of her family as well as all the regions of Iraq in this lovingly-compiled tribute to her homeland's cuisine. This new edition has been completely edited and revised. It includes more than 150 easy-to-follow recipes; detailed introduction to Iraq's history, culture, and cuisine; a guide to spices and ingredients; fascinating notes and family anecdotes, and over 100 color photographs.
The Iraqi Family Cookbook is the winner of the 2012 Goumand World Cookbook Award for "Best Arab Cuisine Cookbook" in the USA.
