Reviews about this book

  • Boston Globe by T. Susan Chang

    Once you get past...the imprecision of the recipe prose, there are some truly innovative, progressive, and - yes - fairly swift riffs on classic Middle Eastern flavor combinations.

Publishers Text

Orient Express is for busy cooks who want a touch of the light, beautiful cuisine of the eastern Mediterranean.

Following her acclaimed Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume, Silvena Rowe turns her focus to the delicious small dishes that you would find in the bustling street markets of Damascus or Istanbul -koftes, falafels and pilafs-as well as delicious puddings such as vanilla baklava, and chocolate and pistachio mousse.

In this treasure trove of a book she presents 100 light, enticing new recipes, perfectly balanced for mezze-style summer meals. This is a cuisine both for celebrating and for sharing: Ottoman-inspired food, based around stunning combinations of sweet and sour-honey and cinnamon, saffron and sumac-and given a brilliant modern twist by one of the most exciting chefs working today.
