Customer Review

on August 13, 2010
Aromas of Aleppo is a beautiful book. It is a pleasure to read and a fine addition to a library. However, I would not advise cooking from it. I am an experienced cook with a passion for Middle Eastern cuisine and, even so, I have had tremendous difficulty making good food from her recipes. Recipes often lack sufficient seasoning and the cooking times always seem off.

If you ant a specialty cookbook about Aleppan Jewish cuisine, I suppose this is your only option. However, if you are looking for a Middle Eastern cookbook, I recommend Claudia Roden's works.

The pictures in the book tell you everything you need to know: the food is beautiful, but a lot of the work is probably done by children and domestic staff.
