Middle Eastern Sweets: Desserts Pastries Creams & Treats

"An engagingly personal mixture ... [with] a classical elegance and a bright modern sensibility." - Nigella Lawson

The latest culinary treat from Salma Hage, one of the Middle East's most-loved home cooks - an authentic, indulgent collection of dessert recipes for all tastes and occasions

Whether you start your day with something sweet, finish it with something sweet, or make sure sweets are within reach all day long, you'll find serious inspiration in the pages of Salma Hage's latest cookbook for home cooks. The Middle East's wide range of cultures, ingredients, and influences informs the array of dishes she includes - spiced cookies, cream-filled pancakes, aromatic pastries, and delicious cakes - with recipes that are easy to follow and celebrate simple-to-source spices and taste combinations. With natural sweeteners such as dates and honey often used in place of refined sugar, and alternate protein sources including nuts and yogurt, and including recipes that are naturally gluten-free, vegan, nut-free and dairy-free, this is the ideal book for both everyday family or festive meals.

This title is featured in connection with the exhibition Persia: Ancient Iran and the Classical World on view April 6, 2022 to August 8, 2022 at the Getty Villa.
