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. Silvena Rowe has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the foods and culinary traditions of the eastern Mediterranean. Her cooking is light and the presentation of her dishes is elegant and sophisticated, while the flavors are powerful and the textures balanced. Her enthusiasm for the food of her heritage is evident on every page.
