Book Cover Persiana

Persiana by Sabrina Ghayour

If you are looking for something a little different, then try this cookery book, Persiana by Sabrina Ghayour.

If you havn´t got a strong supply of middle eastern spices, you will find that you definatly need to stock up for this one.  The recipes are simple to intermediate, with lots of sauces and dips.

Unusual ingredients such as fresh pomegranate  and pomegranate molasses, sambal oelek, edible rose petals, rose water, sumac, barberry, dried sour orange peel, dried whole limes, fenugreek leaves.  None of these are available where I live here in Mallorca. It is possible to buy a lot of these ingredients online, but at a cost.  So if you are on a tight budget this may not be the book for you, as unless you are doing lots of this type of cooking, then they will have a shelf life, so its something to think about.


I love a cook book with lots of colour photos, and on this front it does not disappoint, it can be great for giving you a little inspiration.

But down to the nitty gritty, I have only done one recipe from this book and I really did find sourcing the ingredients expensive and difficult. If I get some inspiration over this winter when I have a little more time I shall add to this post.
