Suzanne Zeidy grew up in a household that loved to cook. Every Friday her Aunt Alba would round up the extended family for a huge Egyptian style supper, where they would gossip, laugh and feast on traditional home-style cooking. In Cairo Kitchen, Suzanne shares the classics that ignited her love of food, as well as her more modern recipes, which are inspired by Middle Eastern flavours. A combination of authentic street food and delicious home-style cooking, this is modern Middle Eastern food, all set against the exotic, vibrant backdrop of Cairo. Try her stuffed vine leaves, home-style beef kofta stew and age-old recipes for breads. Her modern dishes are classics reinterpreted in a fresh and original way. Try quail on quinoa tabboula or seared sea bass on baba ghanoush and a rice kofta served on vermicelli noodles. The chapter on pickles and preserves will transform any dish into a mouthwatering Middle Easternstyle delicacy, and the sweets, such as Halawa truffles and date and walnut cake, are irresistible. Middle Eastern food is made for sharing, and Cairo Kitchen is filled with standout recipes, perfect for any gathering. Illustrated throughout with stunning pictures by award-winning photographer Jonathan Gregson, this stylish cookbook is a celebration of Cairo and its wonderful food.

Ein grandioser Thriller über den ewigen Machtkampf in der arabischen Welt. Ein US-amerikanischer Diplomat wird in einem Budapester Restaurant vor den Augen seiner Frau Sophie erschossen. Ein CIA-Analytiker mit libyschen Wurzeln taucht ab und verschwindet spurlos. Kurz darauf wird ein zweiter Diplomat ermordet, diesmal in Kairo. Der Arabische Frühling wirbelt die Machtverhältnisse in Nordafrika durcheinander und fordert Opfer auf allen Seiten. Sophie vermutet die Drahtzieher des kaltblütigen Mordes an ihrem Mann in Kairo und will sie ausfindig machen. Währenddessen arbeitet man bei der CIA fieberhaft daran, eine außer Kontrolle geratene Operation zu vertuschen. Und Sophie findet sich plötzlich im Auge eines Sturms aus Gewalt und Verrat wieder. Die Kairo-Affäre führt in die paranoide Welt der Geheimdienste, in der Information das wertvollste Gut und Vertrauen die härteste Währung ist. Ein Roman, mit dem Olen Steinhauer seinen Ruf als Meister des temporeichen wie anspruchsvollen Politthrillers untermauert.

Before Elizabeth David died in 1992 she and her editor, Jill Norman, had begun work on a volume of ÔThe Best ofÕ but then her health deteriorated and the project was shelved. The idea was revived in 1996 when chefs and writers and ElizabethÕs many friends, were invited to select their favourite articles and recipes. Some sent notes explaining their choice, others provided an anecdote or a recollection about her, others sent lists of recipes they had been using for years. This book is the fruit of that harvest of recommendations and the names of the contributors, who number among them some of our finest food writers such as Simon Hopkinson, Alice Waters, Sally Clarke, Richard Olney, Paul Levy and Anne Willan, appear after the pieces they had chosen along with their notes. The extracts and recipes which make up South Wind Through the Kitchen are drawn from all Elizabeth DavidÕs books, namely A Book of Mediterranean Food, French Country Cooking, Italian Food, Sumer Cooking, French Provincial Cooking, Spices, Salt and Aromatics in the English Kitchen, English Bread and Yeast Cookery, An Omelette and a Glass of Wine, and Harvest of the Cold Months. There are over 200 recipes in the book organised around courses and ingredients such as eggs and cheese, fish and shellfish, meat, poultry and game, vegetables, pasta, pulses and grains, sauces, sweet dishes and cakes, preserves, and bread, all interspersed with extracts and articles making it a delightful compendium to dip into as well as cook from.

Sophie Kohl is living her worst nightmare. Minutes after she confesses to her husband Emmett, a mid-level diplomat at the American embassy in Hungary, that she had an affair while they were in Cairo, he is shot in the head and killed. Stan Bertolli, a Cairo-based CIA agent, has fielded his share of midnight calls. But his heart skips a beat when he hears the voice of the only woman he ever truly loved, calling to ask why her husband has been assassinated. Jibril Aziz, an American analyst, knows more about Stumbler, a covert operation rejected by the CIA years ago, than anyone. So when it appears someone else has obtained a copy of the blueprints, Jibril knows the danger it represents... As these players converge on the city of Cairo, Olen Steinhauer's masterful manipulations slowly craft a portrait of a marriage, a jigsaw puzzle of loyalty and betrayal, against a dangerous world of political games where allegiances are never clear and outcomes are never guaranteed.

Und ein junges Mädchen, das die Menschen verzaubert und dazu berufen scheint, den Lauf der Weltgeschichte zu verändern. Es ist der Spätsommer 1877. In Constanta am Schwarzen Meer schwebt ein Schwarm Wiedehopfe über dem Haus von Yakob Cohen und seiner Frau Leah. Er kündigt die Geburt eines besonderen Mädchens an, Eleonora. Noch ehe sie das achte Lebensjahr erreicht, lernt sie Lesen und kennt sieben Sprachen. Als ihr Vater geschäftlich nach Istanbul reisen muß, folgt ihm Eleonora als blinder Passagier. Am Bosporus entdeckt sie eine neue Welt der Farbenpracht und geheimnisvollen Eleganz. Doch selbst hier bleiben ihre außergewöhnlichen Gaben nicht lange unentdeckt. Bald schon erfährt auch der Palast des Sultans vom Wunderkind. Abdülhamid II. ist sofort von Eleonora verzaubert und macht sie zu seiner persönlichen Beraterin. Unversehens liegen Wohl und Wehe des Osmanischen Reiches in den Händen einer Achtjährigen.
