Review

-'If you've ever had even a shred of interest in the cuisine from this part of the world, I recommend taking a look at this book. For curious and adventurous cooks, it has enough to inspire our meals for years to come.' Emma Christensen, TheKitchn.com

-‘Offerings from the treasure trove of Babylonian cuisine: From an Iraqi-born comparative literature professor with a love for Middle-Eastern cooking come 'Delights from the Garden of Eden,' a flavor-filled book chock-full of history.’ Vered Guttman, Haaretz

-'This cookbook is more than an introduction to Iraqi cuisine. It is in fact an introduction to Arab cooking in general, researched with the kind of depth not seen before in a cookbook of the Arab world and Middle East.' --CLIFFORD A.WRIGHT, winner of the James Beard/KitchenAid Cookbook of the Year and the James Beard Award for Best Writing on Food for A Mediterranean Feast

-'Humorous, insightful and a pleasure to read. Nawal Nasrallah blends recipes, culinary history, folklore, personal stories and art in a lively mix. Her recipes are precise and easy to follow, with tips and observations derived from her long experience with Iraqi cuisine. Highly recommended.' --PAULA WOLFERT, author of the award-winning Cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean

-'A monument to energy, knowledge and enthusiasm. It is an account of origins and development as well as of the complex ethnic make-up of present-day Iraq.' --TOM JAINE, Petits Propos Culinaires

-‘A culinary odyssey through 8,000 years of Mesopotamian culture and some of the world s oldest recipes, preserved on 3,700-year old cuneiform tablets.’ --RALPH BLUMENTHAL, New York Times

"A splendid achievement, Delights from the Garden of Eden is obviously a labour of love, and the author has done readers, cooks and noncooks alike, a great service in producing such an impressive book. Each page shows erudition, every recipe a passion for food." Times Literary Supplement, Eamonn Gearon 1 Nov. 2013

From the Author

The book has received the Special Award of the Jury of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards for 2007
