Syrian Lamb Pillau
With her beloved Syria clearly under destruction she is heart broken. Wars destroy. Yet sadly mankind repeatedly repeats these horrid mistakes.
We are often at similar cross roads, having been displaced or immigrated through war and by choice. The constant thoughts about borders in general the decision to publish the next cookbook is "Food Across Borders "- how Parsi Food has survived despite the community often crossing borders in large numbers.
In that context this recipe is offered as a "candle of peace and hope". In remembrance of my aunt and all the others like her from Syria who wish they had peace and the free will to live in their own homeland. Food is a universal language which showers us with the warmth of caring, harmony and joy. May the continuity of such delicacies honour Syria's rich culture, history and heritage over the centuries.
|A simple dish of meats, eggplants, tomatoes and rice.|
