We organised Barbara’s recent visit to Bristol in October 2022 to launch her new book Forever Beirut. Her cooking demonstration and talk were a window into Lebanon’s rich culinary history. As the event and her latest book were so successful, we ordered copies of an earlier cook book, Mezze: a labour of love. It is exclusively available in the UK through shorkk.
Alice Waters, the American Chef and restauranteur, says of Mezze: “She finds and explores forgotten traditional foods and techniques and then develops recipes that are irresistible and nourishing. They are not only for the Lebanese but for us all”.
Greg Malouf, Lebanese Australian chef and food writer: “It’s crammed full of dishes I want to cook!”
