    One thought on “Samarkand: Recipes & Stories from Central Asia & the Caucasus”

    1. Lots of tasty recipes based on foods popular in and around Samarkand, plus information about the area and the culture of the Silk Route. Lots of lovely photography and frontispieces (based on local textiles). Gorgeous to look at and I can't wait to start trying the recipes out!

    2. My standards for cookbooks are not too demanding.  I enjoy reading about ideas for foods that I already know I like that are unusual and perhaps a bit exotic but above all sound tasty and are somewhat simple.  Like most people, I am not particularly aware of the cuisine of Central Asia although I have some interest in the area [1].  This book definitely made me curious about the cuisine of the area, and any time a book makes me want to eat the cuisine of an area, even a few dishes of that cui [...]

    3. I was hoping for a little more in terms of the number of recipes and the breadth, but this is a good cookbook all the same. The food is similar to Turkish and Persian, but not identical, and those differences should be pretty interesting to most serious home cooks. The recipes aren't necessarily convenient or fast, but they're true to the culture, so whaddya gonna do?

    4. The photos were gorgeous: this could qualify as a coffee table book. Also has some interesting historical facts and insights. Meat eaters might appreciate this best, but there were a number of delicious vegetarian recipes as well.

    5. Based on reviews and Food52's Piglet tournament I wanted to love Samarkand, but it just didn't do it for me. However, it does have an awesome recipe for khachapuri, a cheese and egg filled bread I adore.

    6. Unique recipes, excellent photography, interesting tidbits on Central Asian cooking. How can you go wrong?

    7. Splendid. Lots of interesting recipes that are so different from the Mediterranean and the usual. Little snippets of information about the places.
