Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I made the orange blossom variation to use as the soak for the Walnut Baklava (pg.222) as recommended. No amounts are given for the orange juice/zest, but I found 1 tsp orange zest and 2 Tbsps fresh orange juice to work very well. This rounded out the orange blossom water so it had floral notes rather than being overpowering. Exceptional on the baklava...have since used the leftover syrup for yogurt/granola cups and as a cocktail mixer in place of usual simple syrup. Delicious.
