Steering back west, like others, I love the Ottolenghi and David Mallouf books. Yotam mentioned on his Mediterranean TV series that his "Moroccan" tome was Paula Wolfert's Food of Morocco.

My copy of the 2nd edition of Delights from the Garden of Eden came in. The content is basically the same, but the format is way better. And the photos are a great help, I would imagine, for people who don't know what the dishes should look like.


I haven't really eaten today, and the pictures of dolma and kubba and kabab and rice & stew really aren't doing me any favors!

There's a new cookbook on it's way (the hardcover that is, kindle is already available): Anatolia by Somer Sivriolu and David Dale.
Seems like an interesting book, but would be curious if someone here has an opinion to share?

Somer has a restaurant, Efendy, in Balmain, Australia. Did a search, but have found no posts in the Australia&New Zealand forum about it. Some of his (other?) recipes can be found on the SBS Australia website.
