Dried Limes – a staple of Iranian cooking. Use a skewer to puncture them before adding to a tagine or drop a couple into the cooking liquid for rice for a stunning hint of fruit. Try grinding into a powder and sprinkling over meat or grain salads too.

Saffron – with a honeyed, almost floral smell, a little goes a long way with this spice. Add to bread, cakes, curries and soups for a golden red colour and beautiful aromas.

Barberries – dried red jewels with a delicious tart flavour. Sprinkle over chicken, stir into rice and couscous or mix with almonds, onions and coriander for a fragrant roast lamb stuffing.

Sumac – Pure sumac or sumach (which means there’s no added salt) boosts the tartness of lemon juice. Use on its own or mix with fresh thyme and sesame seeds for a delicious marinade.

Pomegranate Molasses – Made with 100% pomegranate juice, this thick, ruby-coloured syrup has a sweet favour with a fruity, tart kick.

Rose Petals – Edible rose petals are used throughout the Middle East, adding their delicate floral notes to sweet and savoury recipes.

 

Persiana: Recipes from the Middle East & Beyond
by Sabrina Ghayour

“Middle Eastern cookery is often shrouded in mystery – it’s the stuff of Arabian nights and full of Eastern promise. It is perceived as exotic and unknown. But this is not a true reflection of the simple and honest cuisine that it is.”

“Flavourful food needn’t be a chore, and if you know what to do with a few simple store-cupboard ingredients, you can do wonders in the kitchen. If you were to cook a recipe that was too ingredient – or labour-intensive, what would be the chances of you making that recipe again? Slim – be honest. I have found that if you keep a few spices in your cupboard, some preserved lemons and maybe some harissa, magical, wonderful things can happen.”

“No mess, no fuss, just simple and delicious food – that’s what I eat, that’s what I like to cook for my family and friends and that’s just what I want to share with you.” – Sabrina Ghayour

The steak sharing box was given as a present. The recipients were delighted. It looked so good and the cooked product was excellent-this from two talented cooks. Will buy this again. Lived up to my hopes.
