This is an abbreviated version of the award-winning and highly acclaimed second edition published in 2013, beautifully illustrated throughout, and displays the diversity of the region's traditional culinary practices, delicious and enduring. This edition contains 300 of the original 400 recipes, all tested and easy to follow, and covers all food categories. Ingredients and cooking techniques indigenous to the region are fully explained, with practical ways for making them in the convenience of our modern kitchens, such as baking the Iraqi flat tannour bread and sammoun, and grilling fish masgouf way. Unlike the majority of cookbooks, this book uniquely traces the genesis and development of the Iraqi cuisine over the centuries, starting with the ancient Mesopotamians, through medieval times and leading to the present, aided throughout by the author's intimate native knowledge of cookery. Of particular interest are the book's numerous food-related folkloric stories, reminiscences, anecdotes, songs, poems, excerpts from narratives written by foreign visitors to the region, and cultural explications of customs, all interwoven with the recipes. The book s comprehensive glossary helps familiarize the reader with the indigenous ingredients used in creating authentic Iraqi meals, with substitutes suggested without compromising taste or tradition. This book is a valuable addition to the shelves of specialized and general libraries alike, and a must-have for food lovers everywhere.

From the Author:

SAVEUR magazine (issue 161, December 2013, p. 24) chooses Delights from the Garden of Eden as one of top 10 cookbooks for the year 2013................................................. "Many scholars place the Biblical "Eden" in a massive oasis in southern Iraq. The book, its illustrations, photographs and design, is generous and thoughtful and guides your historical journey through Ms. Nasrallah's personal lens - Eden itself as a metaphor of pleasure and poetry." Rozanne Gold, Huffington Post.................................................................... Ms. Nasrallah has done for Iraqi cuisine what Julia Childs did for French cooking, but to the nth degree.  There are over 400 recipes to be explored, hundreds of beautiful images, and text so meticulous and thoughtful, it could have only been written by someone with incredible knowledge and passion.  Immerse yourself with endless plates full of delicious food and stories of a land and its people so rich with history it will astound you.  A delight in deed. - The Kitchen Journals Editors, Sept. 2014......................................................................A fine introduction to the history and diversity of Iraqi cuisine. Lavishly illustrated, supremely informative, and deeply personal, Nasrallah's publication is far more than an average cookbook or culinary history; instead, it's an adventurous exploration of Iraq's colorful past through food history. This title is unique in not only its breadth - Nasrallah covers everything from exotic ancient desserts to refreshing medieval beverages - but also the way in which recipes are presented in tandem with a sociocultural and historical context.
Ancient History Encyclopedia, online review published  Oct. 15 2014.....................................................................They say immersion is the best way to learn about a people and their culture, and a large part of culture is cuisine. Imagine strolling the streets of Baghdad with a historian on one side, a gastronome on the other, and the locals rushing up to greet you with homemade dishes, and you have Delights from the Garden of Eden.
