Must-reads for your kitchen shelf.
Greg and Lucy Malouf, Hardie Grant, $60 When a great book of sweet treats trundles your way, it’s verging on criminal to say “sorry, I don’t have room”. So politely ask your cookbooks to squidge up and make space for SUQAR. This collection of more than 115 recipes – drawing on the authors’ extensive travels around the Middle East – showcases exciting ingredients such as cardamom, labneh, saffron and more. In this, their eighth book, Greg and Lucy Malouf bring us deliciousness in the form of Bay-butterscotch Baklava and Persian Butter Fudge. Above all, SUQAR is a celebration of sharing, a pillar of Middle Eastern culture. In this season of giving, gift yourself this tasty tome.
