The Middle East has long had a vibrant tradition of home-style vegetarian cuisine – from their abundant fresh salads, dips and breads to their delicious and hearty main meals. Based on the freshest ingredients and cooked from the heart, Greg and Lucy Malouf's approach to vegetarian food comes from their love of traditional Middle Eastern flavor combinations. The recipes in New Feast are new interpretations of Middle Eastern food, inspired by the spirit of generosity and sharing that characterizes the region. Think glazed apple-raisin fritters, zucchini blossom and preserved lemon risotto with ricotta and parmesan or griddled broccolini with almonds and harissa butter. With sections dedicated to butters and preserves, cooked vegetable dishes, dips and spreads, pickles and relishes, pastries, pastas, salads, grains and legumes – this is a beautiful cookbook for anyone wanting to take vegetarian cuisine to new, flavorsome heights.

Natalia arbeitet in einem Waisenhaus irgendwo in Südosteuropa, als sie vom rätselhaften Tod ihres geliebten Großvaters erfährt. Nach Erklärungen suchend, erinnert sich die junge Ärztin an jene Geschichten aus seinem Leben, die sich um zwei seltsame, fatale Gestalten drehen – die Tigerfrau, eine schöne Taubstumme in seinem Heimatdorf, die einen geflüchteten Tiger pflegte; und einen charmanten, obskuren Mann, der nicht sterben kann. Während Natalia auf den Spuren des Großvaters durch idyllische und kriegsverwüstete Landschaften reist, werden ihr diese Figuren immer gegenwärtiger. Bald entspinnt sich ein ganzer Kosmos an Mythen und Gestalten, und Natalia begreift, welche Wahrheit über die Lebensrätsel ihrer Familie und ihre versehrte Heimat in ihnen steckt ... Sprachgewaltig, mit unvergesslichen Figuren und einer erzählerischen Virtuosität, die an Gabriel García Márquez erinnert, entwirft Téa Obreht das schmerzlich-schöne Bild einer zwischen gestern und heute gefangenen, mythengläubigen Welt. «Time» schrieb über «Die Tigerfrau»: «Liebe, Legende und Tod werden hier so wundervoll geschildert, dass jeder andere Roman in diesem Jahr Gefahr läuft, an der unheimlichen Schönheit dieses Buches gemessen zu werden. Seit Zadie Smith debütierte kein junger Autor mit solcher Kraft und Eleganz.»

Israeli-born chef Michael Rantissi and his partner and 'balaboosta' Aussie girl Kristy Frawley drill down to what we all love about the ingredients and flavours of the Middle East - grains and greens, generosity, pungency, sweetness, sharing. This is food that brings everyone to the table, and won't let them leave. Michael puts ingredients first and foremost, opening the door to our greater understanding and appreciation of the Middle East's hidden treasures --- tahini, baharat, halva, chickpeas, labneh, eggplant, honey, pomegranate, amba, dates, broad beans, pistachios, wild greens, ancient grains. The recipes go from basics like hummus, aioli and falafel, to Persian eggplant risotto, Cauliflower, cranberry and pearl barley salad; and Harissa-braised lamb with okra. To finish are the pastries, breads and syrup-laden cakes - Chocolate and pistachio baklava, Date and dukkah brownies, Persian pavlova. Living in multicultural Sydney, he says, has helped him lighten and brighten traditional recipes, without ever losing sight of their origins and traditions. 'If my mother knew I was serving falafel for breakfast - and people were loving it - she would be amazed'. A much-lauded home cook, Kristy adds those all-important pastries, breads and syrup-laden cakes that turn a meal into a feast, any time of the day or night.
