Noshe Djan!


Enjoy these recipes from the new book by Iranian-born Sabrina Ghayour

The fantastic Iranian-born, British-raised cook and writer Sabrina Ghayour is back with a new book, Sirocco, named for the hot, dry wind which blows from east to west, often described as warm, spicy and sultry, just like her recipes.
Sirocco brings tastes of the East to western-style dishes in a collection of 100 delicious and accessible recipes with an emphasis on simple ingredients and strong flavours.

Sabrina shared some of her dishes and offered an insight into her cookery with an appearance at Forum Books, Corbridge, in early May, which inspired us to bring you these recipes. Noshe Djan (that’s enjoy your meal to you and I!)
