We love Claudia Roden CBE, she is an Egyptian-born British cookbook writer and cultural anthropologist of Sephardi/Mizrahi descent. She is best known as the author of Middle Eastern cookbooks including A Book of Middle Eastern Food, The New Book of Middle Eastern Food and Arabesque—Sumptuous Food from Morocco, Turkey and Lebanon.
She’s played a huge part in introducing the food of Egypt in particular and the Middle East in general to Britain & many chefs, like Ottolegni, José Pizarro & Sam Clark credit her as an inspitation.
We love lots of her recipes but in particular this one as it’s super easy to prepare and can last all week.
