By Anas Atassi 

Sumac is filled with over eighty traditional and contemporary Syrian recipes that were inspired by personal stories. The gorgeous photography by Rania Kataf, illustrates how beautiful this country was and still is, and family photographs add depth to the author's history. Each chapter is filled with Anas Atassi's memories of family celebrations and the country that inspired the book. He tells stories of traditional weekend breakfasts in his grandmother's garden and of the mezze his mother cooked for family gatherings. There are memories of the rich aromatic flavors of the Syrian kitchen where fragrant spices like the lemony and deep red sumac are prized ingredients.

“This book takes you on a journey into the lives of Syrians, before the war, remembering home, the best way they know how: through the dinner table of their ancestors. It is a delight and a celebration of everything that symbolizes hope and connection. You just want to cook everything in it. I loved it. It’s beautiful. ” - Joudie Kalla, author of Palestine on a Plate and Baladi
