Summary "In the 1920s, Habeeb Salloum's parents left behind the orchards and vineyards of French-occupied Syria to seek a new life on the windswept, drought-stricken Canadian prairies. With recollections that show the grit and improvisation of early Syrian pioneers, Arab Cooking on a Prairie Homestead demonstrates Salloum's love of traditional Arab cuisine. By growing "exotic" crops brought from their country of origin-such as lentils, chickpeas, and bulgur-the Salloums survived the Dust Bowl conditions of the 1930s, and helped change the landscape of Canadian farming. Over 200 recipes-from dumplings and lentil pies to zucchini mint soup-in this updated classic will provide today's foodies and urban farmers with dishes that are not only delicious, but also climate-friendly and gentle on your wallet!"-- Provided by publisher
