Our new book CHASING SMOKE: COOKING OVER FIRE AROUND THE LEVANT is out May 13th 2021.
We’re back with more delicious dishes from the Middle East, and this time our focus is firmly on the grill.
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Where there’s fire, there’s delicious food to share, and friendships and memories to make.
From the countryside of Jordan to the back streets of Cairo we’ve been following a smoke trail, answering the ancient call of the hot coals, chasing down the delicious, proud traditions of cooking over fire around the Middle East – eating sweet roasted chestnut at roadside stalls in Adana, grilling sardines on Greek beaches, exploring the alleyway markets of Amman and Acre – burning our fingers turning meat and bread, always looking for the friendliest people, the fiercest fires and the tastiest ideas to bring back to our kitchen, our restaurants, and to this book.
