Discover a playful new take on Middle Eastern cuisine with more than 100 fresh, flavorful recipes.
"Finally! Eden Grinshpan is letting us in on her secrets of her healthful and deliriously delicious cooking."--Bobby Flay
Eden Grinshpan's accessible cooking is full of bright tastes and textures that reflect her Israeli heritage and laid-back but thoughtful style. In Eating Out Loud, Eden introduces readers to a whirlwind of exciting flavors, mixing and matching simple, traditional ingredients in new ways: roasted whole heads of broccoli topped with herbaceous yogurt and crunchy, spice-infused dukkah; a toasted pita salad full of juicy summer peaches, tomatoes, and a bevy of fresh herbs; and babka that becomes pull-apart morning buns, layered with chocolate and tahini and sticky with a salted sugar glaze, to name a few.
For anyone who loves a big, boisterous spirit both on the plate and around the table, Eating Out Loud is the perfect guide to the kind of meal--full of family and friends eating with their hands, double-dipping, and letting loose--that you never want to end.
