Notes about this book

    Honey & Cranberry cake - a similar experience to JanElsner with this cake too - makes me think that the recipe may not have been tested. No indication of whether or not to drain cranberries before adding (I drained them before adding..). Recipe appears to have an excessive amount of baking powder. No size given for the kugelhopf cake tin - I used a 10 cup tin , batter filled half way, and then at 30 minutes into the bake it decided to overflow the tin... Supposed to be cooked in 40 -45 minutes ... At 50 minutes @ 170C it was still wobbly liquid; after 1.5 hours in oven still NOT cooked. Decided to take it out. As written, recipe does not generate a pretty cake. I've never had a cake disaster before! Flavour is nice, maybe it'll make a good bread pudding?

    Persian love cake p191 is a enticingly different version, that looked to me like it wouldn't bake. And it didn't. Over 2hrs in oven attempting to make something of it. Soggy mess. Lovely flavour, with pomegranate molasses, but requires more binding and some rising agents to work. Not a great start to a highly awaited book.

Let Hummus & Co invite you into its generous heart, full of love, laughter and great food for sharing with friends and family. The 140+ recipes for fresh greens and vegetables, grains, fish, chicken and meat, are bursting with zesty flavour - perfect for a lazy weekend brunch, a family barbeque with fresh, bountiful salad vegetables and legumes, or a Sunday slow-roasted, cumin and coriander spiced lamb shoulder, with Persian cranberry rice pilaf and tangy vegetables. There are midweek dishes that the family will love - cook-ahead Moussaka or Persian meatball soup, and plenty of dips, relishes, rubs and spreads from Israel, Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey that turn a simple piece of fish or meat into a feast for the senses. There are authentic teas and sweet treats that are beyond dreamy - Persian love cake, Candied sesame seed bars, Pistachio and rosewater cake with plums and mascarpone. Possibly most sublime of all, there are incredible vegan and vegetarian dishes that bring vegetables front and centre - why eat plain veg when you can choose from Green beans with goat's cheese, almonds and a spritz of lemon juice, or Steamed leeks with spinach and haloumi, Broccolini pangrattato, Scorched onions with pomegranate molasses and haloumi or an Asparagus, pea and feta tart? And of course there's the perfect hummus recipe, guaranteed to bring everyone to the table. Come sit down, you're invited.
