Feast – Anissa Helou

Anissa’s book delves into the heart of the Islamic world and you can devour it like a novel. It’s filled with explanations on the origins of people and the recipes they’ve created, their histories, how they’ve evolved, and what cultures have influenced them over the years. Anissa walks us through the Islamic world as a whole, way back to the beginning of the seventh century when Islam was born. She explores the important occasions like Ramadan, and celebrations for the birth of a child to the death of a loved one and the traditional dishes they prepare for these occasions.
