We are so proud reveal the cover of Chef Rawia’s second cookbook entitled LEVANT. This book takes Middle Eastern food one step further fusing the East together with the West. The recipes have been tested and perfected at Tanoreen for the last several years. Levant will be released in the US on June 5th and is available for pre-order now.
Olives, Lemons & Za’atar takes you on the colorful culinary journey that brought Rawia Bishara from her native Nazareth to her adopted hometown of New York City, where she presides over the acclaimed Brooklyn restaurant, Tanoreen. Through engaging stories & thoughtful recipes, she recounts the joys of growing up in a food-loving family in which every meal provided the backdrop for her most cherished memories. As the daughter of a passionate, imaginative home cook, Bishara honors her mother’s unique approach to traditional Middle Eastern cuisine with dishes that are rarely experienced outside the region. As a celebrated restaurateur, she has created original offerings in the same spirit, inspired by her Mediterranean travels & years of cooking for her own family in America. In nine chapters ranging from Breakfast to Dessert (including many vegetarian options), Bishara shared her poignant memories & her superb recipes, tossing in a little extra spice here & a handful of savory herbs there, just as her beloved mother did so many years ago.
