Summary
In lush, fiercely intelligent prose, Ciezadlo uses food and the rituals of eating to uncover a vibrant Middle East most Americans never see. We get to know people like Roaa, a young Kurdish woman whose world shrinks under occupation to her own kitchen walls; Abu Rifaat, a Baghdad book lover who spends his days eavesdropping in the ancient city's legendary cafes; and the unforgettable Umm Hassane, Ciezadlo's sardonic Lebanese mother-in-law, who teaches her to cook rare family recipes included in a mouthwatering appendix of Middle Eastern comfort food. From dinner in downtown Beirut to underground book clubs in Baghdad, this book is a profound exploration of everyday survival--a moving testament to the power of love and generosity to transcend the misery of war
Summary
Ciezadlo presents a beautifully written, fiercely intelligent memoir exploring the heightened meaning of cooking during wartime
