Editorial Reviews

Review

"The pages are so packed with Silvena's characteristic enthusiasm and irresistible passion, I defy anyone to resist." -- Heston Blumenthal "Gloriously presented recipes from lesser-known regions of the eastern Mediterranean which draw on Rowe's Ottoman heritage and her passion for the region, as she weaves poetry, fairy tale and history into her cookbook. Another one for fans of the Moro and Ottolenghi cookbooks to savour." * Editor's Pick, Bookseller * "Filled with recipes that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to eat." * Daily Mail * "This enticingly photographed book is a great read and a fascinating exploration of Eastern Mediterranean food and culture." * Delicious Magazine * "Remarkable and seductively beautiful" * Adelaide Independent *

From the Back Cover

Silvena Rowe, executive chef of London's exquisite restaurant Quince at the May Fair Hotel, invites you on a journey through Eastern Mediterranean history and its culinary secrets. Here, the olive oil, rosemary, and basil of the West meet the exotic spices of the East for a contemporary cuisine of surprising lightness and variety.

From tempting starters such as creamy feta and caramelized leek filo pastries to sumptuous entrées such as spiced pilaf with duck confit, raisins, and pine nuts to heavenly desserts like maple-glazed roasted figs with pistachio praline, this is food for celebrating, for healthy living, and, above all, for sharing.

Rowe offers a modern twist on the classic recipes of a rich tradition, following in the footsteps of the great Ottoman chefs who combined the sweet and the sour, the fresh and the dried, the flavors of honey and cinnamon, saffron and sumac, scented rose and orange flower water. Filled with mouthwatering recipes that can be made using surprisingly simple and easy-to-find ingredients, and illustrated with stunning photographs, Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume brings to life the natural beauty and irresistible flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean.
