Publishers Text

In Arab Cooking on a Prairie Homestead, over 200 recipes and the author's childhood recollections combine to tell the story of a little-known group of early immigrants to the prairies--the Syrians. There was a significant Syrian community in Saskatchewan during the Depression, and their traditional foods and crops were well-suited to the dryland farming that the drought of the 1930s demanded.

Readers will delight in Habeeb Salloum's childhood recollections and his tales of encounters with food around the world. Cooks will be inspired by his love of cooking, by his deep appreciation for his culinary heritage, and by his enthusiasm for new discoveries in food through his travels.

The recipe instructions are simple, straightforward, and thorough. Arab proverbs throughout the book provide both insight and humour.
