A Fistful of Lentils:Syrian Cooking

Syrian Cooking

In the world of Middle Eastern cooking, Syria is said to contain some of the best food in the Arabic world. Strategically located along the ancient Silk Route (connecting Asia to Europe), Syria has had easy access to such delicacies from India and China as tamarind, pepper, and rice for thousands of years. Join Jennifer Abadi, Middle Eastern food expert and author of "A Fistful of Lentils: Syrian-Jewish Recipes from Grandma Fritzie’s Kitchen," to learn how to prepare some of the typical recipes from her family’s native Aleppo, Syria. You’ll make and enjoy: Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Lemony Spinach and Pine Nuts; Smoky Eggplant Dip with Sesame Paste; Rice with Lentils and Cucumber-Mint-Yogurt Dressing; Meatballs with Sour Cherries and Tomato Paste; Bulgur Wheat Pie Stuffed with Ground Beef, Allspice, and Cinnamon; Chopped Tomato-Cucumber Salad with Olives, Lemon, and Mint; Shredded Phyllo Dough Pie with Ricotta Cheese and Rosewater Syrup; and Tamarind "Iced Tea" with Lemon.
