You can also get Aromas of Aleppo: The Legendary Cuisine of Syrian Jews.
When the Aleppian Jewish community migrated from the ancient city of Aleppo in historic Syria and settled in New York and Latin American cities in the early 20th century, it brought its rich cuisine and vibrant culture. Most Syrian recipes and traditions, however, were not written down and existed only in the minds of older generations. Poopa Dweck, a first generation Syrian–Jewish American, has devoted much of her life to preserving and celebrating her community’s centuries–old legacy.
Like mainstream Middle Eastern cuisines, Aleppian Jewish dishes are alive with flavor and healthful ingredients–featuring whole grains, vegetables, legumes, and olive oil–but with their own distinct cultural influences. Among the irresistible recipes in her cookbook are:
- Shurbat Addes–Hearty Red Lentil Soup with Garlic and Coriander
- Bazargan–Tangy Tamarind Bulgur Salad
- Kibbeh–Stuffed Syrian Meatballs with Ground Rice
- Samak b’Batata–Baked Middle Eastern Whole Fish with Potatoes
- Sambousak–Buttery Cheese–Filled Sesame Pastries
- Eras bi’Ajweh–Date–Filled Crescents
- Chai Na’na–Refreshing Mint Tea
