The Aleppo Cookbook: Celebrating the Legendary Cuisine of Syriaby Marlene Matar

An inspiring collection of recipes from one of the world's oldest cities.

It is hardly surprising that Aleppo, one of the world's oldest inhabited cities, is also home to one of the world's most distinguished and vibrant cuisines. Surrounded by fertile lands and located at the end of the Silk Road, Aleppo was a food capital long before Paris, Rome or New York.

Here, one of the Arab world's most renowned chefs unlocks the secrets to this distinctive cuisine. Featuring over 200 irresistible regional recipes, such as Chili and Garlic Kebab, Syrian Fishcakes, Semolina and Butter Pudding, and the queen of the mezze table, Red Pepper and Walnut Spread, The Aleppo Cookbook is a beautiful introduction to the Syrian table.

Marlene Matar is a chef, cookbook author and cooking instructor. She attended Beirut's L'Academia Italiana Bella Cuccina, and studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. In 1999, she opened her cooking school which has amassed a devoted following. She lives in Beirut.

The rich culinary heritage of Aleppo comes to life in this tribute to the Syrian city... This introduction to Middle Eastern cooking techniques will equally satisfy beginners or experienced fans of the regional fare' Publishers Weekly

'With The Aleppo Cookbook, Marlene Matar fetes the ancient city's culinary promise' Guardian

'Matar's beautifully illustrated cookbook is a love letter to the city, reminding us that there is so much more to the Levant than what we see in the news' The Lady
