Modern Flavours of Arabia

Modern flavours of Arabia.jpgSome new flavours to explore today for this week's food item....

Suzanne Husseini is the former host of one of the most popular cooking shows in Middle East - and one of the judges on Top Chef Middle East.

Her new cookbook - her first North American cookbook - is called Modern Flavors of Arabia.

It's a beautifully illustrated book featuring chapters on breakfast, lunch and dinner - along with snack plates called 'mezze'.

There are traditional Arabian foods with modern twists. And ingredients like saffron, cinnamon, pine nuts, pistachios, dates, oranges, and sesame.

You can practically taste it.

Suzanne Husseini emigrated with her family to Canada as a young girl. She now divides her time between Ottawa and Dubai. (*Click here for recipes she talked about today.)
