Feasts: From the Sunday Times no.1 bestselling author of
Sabrina Ghayour doesn’t really need much of an introduction as she is a driving force in the UK food industry. She is best known for her simple but flavourful Middle Eastern dishes and her work has featured in many popular publications such as the Guardian and BBC Good Food Magazine. Sabrina’s first cookbook Persiana was awarded ‘Best New Cookbook’ at the Observer Food Monthly Awards in 2014. She has written other Sunday Times bestselling books such as Feasts and Bazaar. Still, I did not feel deprived when I got to work on some of the other dishes. Ghayour’s recipes are always full of taste. In her brilliant book, Bazaar, she sometimes got carried away by her love of rose harissa. In Simply, many of the dishes I attempted had in common preserved lemons, tahini and the zest and juice of a plump lime. Each recipe utilizes the abundance of varied flavour profiles of the East, from spices, herbs and perfumed aromatics to hearty staples such as grains and pulses, combined with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. You will find salads for all seasons, spectacular sides, bowl comfort, moreish mains and sweet treats.
Fold the overhanging pastry into the centre, then gently crumple up the remaining 2 pastry sheets and arrange them on top. Brush all the exposed pastry and edges with beaten egg and sprinkle over the nigella seeds. I did find some of the recipes a bit sweet for my taste, and tended to cut the sugar content by at least half. I also used crushed fresh garlic instead of the stated garlic granules.

I have made nine of the recipes so far and only one didn’t quite cut it (lamb and mint kofte p78 since you ask - needed something more). From ‘Traditions with a Twist’ I started with butternut borani as this is one of my favourite side dishes. I usually make it with spinach so was intrigued by the chance to make it with a squash.A street food chef prepares bang trang nuong or Vietnamese pizza at a street food stall in Hanoi.
