A review of my friend Annia Ciezadlo's new book "Days of Honey" in the NYT. I am really looking forward to reviewing it for Land and People and Al Akhbar.
"There are many good reasons to read “Day of Honey.” It’s a carefully researched tour through the history of Middle Eastern food. It’s filled with adrenalized scenes from war zones, scenes of narrow escapes and clandestine phone calls and frightening cultural misunderstandings. Ms. Ciezadlo is completely hilarious on the topic of trying to please her demanding new Lebanese in-laws." (Thanks Deborah)
