Sabrina Ghayour’s next book announced

Sabrina Ghayour Persiana Middle Eastern Food

Sabrina Ghayour, author of award-winning Persiana (Mitchell Beazley), is to publish a new cookbook next year. Sirocco: Fabulous Flavours from the East will “bring tastes of the East to Western-style dishes” in a collection of 100 recipes.

With an emphasis on simple ingredients and strong flavours, Ghayour will bring her modern inspirational touch to a variety of dishes ranging from classics and comfort food to spectacular salads and sweet treats.

Sauce Management client Sabrina says: “I have learned so much about the way people cook in their own homes and also realised that my style, as a home cook, was one of the key strengths of Persiana. It showed people there were no strict rules to those recipes which gave the user a kind of freedom and confidence in recreating them in their own home without fear of failure.

“Taking all of this on board, Sirocco felt like a natural progression in exploring the flavours made familiar in Persiana but showing people the versatility and multitude of ways in which you can use a handful of cupboard staples to create a myriad of dishes which combine some of the same ingredients with various fresh produce but create completely different results and flavour combinations each time.”

Sirocco will be published in May 2016 in £25 hardback. The book’s cover will be revealed at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
