A glimpse at the pages from the chapter about hospitality and food.
Hello, guys. Excuse my absence but I haven’t forgotten you. Been busy with things book related and all have been very exciting so far! The pre-orders keep pouring in and I cannot thank you enough for that! Thank you for the support of the work I’ve put my heart and soul into to make it useful and enjoyable to all of you.
Some of you have asked me in I could possibly post some sample pages from the book on the blog. I would be happy to do it with this post. The book is beautiful, says me, modesty aside. My designer and I worked hard on it. We were a team, working day and night, brainstorming, selecting photos, deciding on their placements, moving and tweaking things, and working on a zillion details. We hope you like our work.
Meanwhile, here are some sample pages from “Pomegranates and Saffron: A Culinary Journey to Azerbaijan.”
Tabriz-Style Meatballs are beyond delicious! Stuffed with eggs, walnuts, and dried fruits—they are exotic and flavorful!
This is by far one of the most requested recipes from AZ Cookbook readers, familiar with Azerbaijani food. Sweet halva (umaj halvasi) made with flour crumbs, obtained using a special technique that will be all yours with step by step pictures.
Pickled plums of all sorts and colors. Briny, succulent, palate-tickling.
Note that a lot of recipes in the book will be accompanied with Words of Wisdom (wow for WOW!) – sayings and proverbs that would relate to a particular recipe. Who said a cookbook is just a compilation of recipes? I believe a cookbook can give you more than that. It’s been my goal with “Pomegranates and Saffron.” Hope you enjoy my hand-picked words of wisdom, stories, and anecdotes. Along with some 200 delicious recipes.
