The first authoritative cookbook to present the culinary treasures and intriguing customs of the ancient yet enduring Aleppian Jewish communitywith 150 mouthwatering recipes and gorgeous color photos
When the Aleppian Jewish community migrated from the ancient city of Aleppo in historic Syria and settled in New York and Latin American cities in the early 20th century, it brought its rich cuisine and vibrant culture. Most Syrian recipes, however, were not written down and existed only in the mind of older cooks. Poopa Dweck, a first generation Syrian-Jewish American, has devoted much of her life to preserving and celebrating her communitys centuries-old legacy.
Dweck places the Aleppian Jewish cuisine in historical and cultural context, offers 150 exciting ethnic recipes with tantalizing photos, and describes the unique customs that the Aleppian Jewish community observes during holidays and lifecycle events. Among the irresistible recipes are:
BazarganTangy Tamarind Bulgur Salad

Samak bBatataBaked Middle Eastern Whole Fish with Potatoes

Like mainstream Middle Eastern cuisines, Aleppian Jewish dishes are alive with flavor and healthful ingredientsfeaturing whole grains, vegetables, legumes, and olive oilbut with their own distinct cultural influences. In Aromas of Aleppo, cooks will discover the best of Poopa Dwecks recipes, which gracefully combine Mediterranean and Levantine influences, and range from small delights (or maza) to daily meals and regal holiday feastssuch as the twelve-course Passover seder. Aromas of Aleppo offers a rich ethnic feast for the palate, the eyes, and the soul.
