Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Clementine, pistachio and pomegranate cake [Amelia Freer]

    • Jane on February 06, 2020

      I'm not sure about this cake. It was a perfectly nice cake and looked pretty with the pistachio and pomegranate sprinkles. But I'm a huge fan of Claudia Roden's Almond orange cake and I'm not sure the addition of tahini, nuts and pomegranates in this recipe is an improvement on that cake. But the friends I made it for all loved it so maybe it's just my preference for a simpler cake.

  • Spiced lamb pies [Eric Lanlard]

    • e_ballad on July 26, 2018

      An easy & tasty midweek meal, that could be made very quickly if the filling was prepped in advance. I’d consider mixing in the mint just before adding the pastry lid, as cooking it with the filling made it barely appreciable.

  • Tahini and cardamom buns [Claire Ptak]

    • dprostrollo on September 28, 2018

      The cardamom was very overpowering. The texture and bake of the bun was great, but next time I might omit cardamom entirely from the sugar mix.

  • Jasmine and Damask rose cake [Lily Vanilli]

    • e_hothersall on May 08, 2021

      The recipe doesn’t state a temperature but I used 180•C in a fan oven and it went fine. Instead of a buttercream I made a simple icing with some rose jam and rose water, and some strawberry jam in the middle. Very tasty though not as pretty as the original!

As one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our time, the Syrian crisis is one that is impossible to ignore. We are privileged to have the opportunity, no matter how small, to do something to help. - Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh

It s just an incredible project. I love how it brings people together, uniting them through a love of food and creating an awareness of such an important issue. - Deliciously Ella
