Product Description


When the Aleppian Jewish community migrated from the ancient city of Aleppo in historic Syria and settled in New York and Latin American cities in the early 20th century, it brought its rich cuisine and vibrant culture. Most Syrian recipes and traditions, however, were not written down and existed only in the minds of older generations. Poopa Dweck, a first generation Syrianu2013Jewish American, has devoted much of her life to preserving and celebrating her community's centuriesu2013old legacy.

Dweck relates the history and culture of her community through its extraordinary cuisine, offering more than 180 exciting ethnic recipes with tantalizing photos and describing the unique customs that the Aleppian Jewish community observes during holidays and lifecycle events. Among the irresistible recipes are:

u2022Bazarganu2013Tangy Tamarind Bulgur Salad

u2022Shurbat Addesu2013Hearty Red Lentil Soup with Garlic and Coriander

u2022Kibbehu2013Stuffed Syrian Meatballs with Ground Rice

u2022Samak b'Batatau2013Baked Middle Eastern Whole Fish with Potatoes

u2022Sambousaku2013Buttery Cheeseu2013Filled Sesame Pastries

u2022Eras bi'Ajwehu2013Dateu2013Filled Crescents

u2022Chai Na'nau2013Refreshing Mint Tea

Like mainstream Middle Eastern cuisines, Aleppian Jewish dishes are alive with flavor and healthful ingredientsu2013featuring whole grains, vegetables, legumes, and olive oilu2013but with their own distinct cultural influences. In Aromas of Aleppo, cooks will discover the best of Poopa Dweck's recipes, which gracefully combine Mediterranean and Levantine influences, and range from small delights (or maza) to daily meals and regal holiday feastsu2013such as the twelveu2013course Passover seder.
