A journey through space and flavors, this book offers the surprising experience of meeting Saudi people through their food. 32 recipes for starters, main courses, and desserts have been selected among the thousands submitted by Saudi families in response to an initiative of the Kingdom’s Ministry of Culture. Illustrated by charming shots of Saudi cooks in the intimacy of their kitchens and organized in 5 chapters – Rice, Cardamom, Lamb, Dates, and Wheat – the recipes are easy to reproduce at home, with step-by-step instructions and photographs. Texts penned by culinary experts also introduce readers to local history, dietary traditions, proverbs, and anecdotes that uncover a genuine way of life, a tradition of hospitality, and an inviting culinary heritage.
