Arab Cooking on a Prairie Homestead by Habeeb Salloum (Softcover book)

$34.95

In the 1920s, Habeen Salloum’s parents left behind the orchards and vineyards of French-occupied Syria to seek a new life on the windswept, drought-stricken prairies. With recollections that show the grit and improvisation of pioneers, Arab Cooking on a Prairie Homestead demonstrates Sallum’s love of traditional Arab cuisine. By growing “exotic” crops brought from home – such as lentils and chickpeas – the Salloums survived the dirty thirties and helped change the landscape of Canadian farming.

Over 200 recipes in this updated classic – from dumplings to lentil pies to zucchini mint soup – provide today’s foodies and urban farmers with dishes that are not only delicious, but also gentle on the wallet and climate-friendly.
