    Easy! upside down pear and ginger cake - you have picked one of my biggest weaknesses for a recipe...

  • drewdeakin  on  6/29/2017 at 5:37 AM

    I'm a regular to IMA and I adore their Hot cross buns when it's easter time, It would be amazing to be able to make these at home.

  • CC.cooks  on  6/29/2017 at 9:48 PM

    The Orange and Vanilla Danish would be my first choice

  • laineylx  on  6/29/2017 at 10:13 PM

  • Cattyb  on  7/3/2017 at 6:04 PM

    I'd like to try the Moussaka - it's cold here in Melbourne and something warm and comforting sounds like a plan!

  • lhodder2016  on  7/4/2017 at 4:32 AM

    Sfogliatelle for the theatre of eating them and ma'amoul for the memories they'll reignite of my childhood in Egypt during the Ramadan fasting and feasting period!

  • matag  on  7/4/2017 at 9:07 PM

    Brick lane hot beef sandwich

  • jdub1371  on  7/7/2017 at 3:27 PM

    Balkan omelet! Being an egg lover, I tend to gravitate towards egg recipes.

  • Lrc_nz  on  7/7/2017 at 3:30 PM

    Mm middle eastern eggs- yum

  • IngridO  on  7/7/2017 at 3:38 PM

    Three rice Salad

  • Juli  on  7/7/2017 at 7:19 PM

    It would be a salad, at this time of year it would have to be the grilled carrot and feta salad :)

  • phylliscaroline  on  7/7/2017 at 9:52 PM

    I love any type of spice-laden chicken and rice but to try something completely new I might first bake the rhubarb custard cake. And then maybe the Matluch because I love stewed pepper side dishes.

  • Dmartin997  on  7/7/2017 at 11:16 PM

    Summer berries cheesecake

  • AnnaZed  on  7/8/2017 at 1:33 PM

    Brioche dough (page 60)

  • bohfive  on  7/8/2017 at 5:04 PM

    I'd cook the grilled carrot salad - would work for a winter salad

  • Gneissspice  on  7/8/2017 at 5:49 PM

    Shakshuka is my favorite food of all time. But, I think I'd try the Fattoush with Grilled Halloumi to mix it up.

  • teaparty  on  7/9/2017 at 6:48 PM

    Middle Eastern Eggs, and all the other egg recipes - my hens are very productive at the moment

  • daniellespinato1  on  7/10/2017 at 7:20 AM

    Tomato and feta scrolls (although the caramel apple scrolls sound tasty, too!).

  • sequoia55  on  7/11/2017 at 1:22 AM

    Upside down pear and ginger cake

  • dmass  on  7/23/2017 at 6:57 AM

    Middle Eastern Chicken & Rice - the ingredients alone get my mouth watering lol.

  • kerrin1976  on  7/27/2017 at 9:26 PM

    It would have to be cinnamon twists or maybe jam doughnuts. They all sound so good.

  • Cmandicos  on  7/28/2017 at 6:32 AM

    I would love to try Shushbarak-with-cauliflower-and-yoghurt p216. It is a tempting combination.
