Soframiz: Vibrant Middle Eastern Recipes from Sofra Bakery and Cafe Review
A charming collection of 100 recipes from Cambridge's Sofra Bakery and Cafe, showcasing modern Middle Eastern spices and flavors with exotic yet accessible sweet and savory dishes geared toward everyday cooking and entertaining.
Ana Sortun and Maura Kilpatrick have traveled extensively throughout Turkey and the Middle East, researching recipes and gaining inspiration for their uber-popular cafe and bakery, Sofra. In their first cookbook together, the two demystify and explore the flavors of this popular region, creating accessible, fun recipes for everyday eating and entertaining. With a primer on essential ingredients and techniques, and recipes such as Morning Buns with Orange Blossom Glaze, Whipped Feta with Sweet and Hot Peppers, Eggplant Manoushe with Labne and Za'atar, and Sesame Caramel Cashews, Soframiz will transport readers to the markets and kitchens of the Middle East.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- The recipes look great and are very easy to understand. The only downside for me was that most of the ingredients are not easily accessible. I would love to go visit the actual bakery and would definitely try their foods as well beverages, but not sure that mine would come out the same even if I could find the ingredients.
