I’ve found myself with a little extra time to cook lately, not to mention a need for some dinner-time variety now that we’re no longer going to restaurants, and I’ve been using it to explore some of the gorgeous cookbooks I like to hoard- I mean, “collect”. I’ve been on a Middle-eastern food kick lately, sparked in part by the discovery of a fabulous Persian market nearby, and in part by my newest cookbook acquisition: Zaitoun by Yasmin Khan. Last night I put on some oud music and got started on a few of the recipes. Dinner was a delicious tabouli salad with fresh parsley, lemons and mint from the garden, homemade pita and flatbreads with za’atar, hummus, fresh feta and olives. Delish.

You can order her book here, and if you want to try the flatbread recipe, I saw it online here. It was very easy and rewarding, though it’s really helpful to have a pizza stone. I’m thinking of trying the eggplant kofta tonight…
