Description - Snackistan by Sally Butcher

Street Food, Comfort Food, Meze - informal eating in the Middle East & beyond. Hot on the heels of VEGGIEStAN, Sally Butcher brings us SNACKIStAN: a fictitious land where tummies are always full, and there's a slightly naughty smile on every face. Snackistan does not, of course, exist, any more than Veggiestan does. It is, rather, a borderless confederation of the Middle East's favourite foodstuffs. the simple fare that people actually eat on a daily basis: dishes prepare at home, or cook to share with friends, or look forward to indulging the end of the week. We all like to snack - increasingly, formal dining is being nudged aside in favour of meze-style spreads. And, at the same time, street food has come of age. In malls and farmers markets across the world, food the hoof has become a stylish and popular way to feed. this book picks out Middle East's most exciting street foods and meze dishes, together with a range of homely and simple snack recipes elicited from family and friends. Chapters comprise Nuts and Nibbles, Fishy things, Meat on Sticks, Meat Not on Sticks, Salady Stuff, Hot Veggie Dishes, Mostly Carbs, Puds, & Something to Wash Down With. the burst of flavours is intoxicating, as is Sally's trademark wit and attention to detail - a must-buy for all Middle Eastern food enthusiasts.

Author Biography - Sally Butcher

Sally Butcher is the fiery-haired proprietress of the notable Persian food store Persepolis in Peckham, London, which she runs with her Persian husband, Jamshid. She is also a prolific author and blogger, who has amassed a devoted online following for her food-, shop- and Peckham-related musings. The foodie delights of the Middle East are her specialist subject, but she has been known to venture far and wide for inspiration. Her first book, Persia in Peckham, was published to critical acclaim and short-listed for the 2008 Andre Simon Award. It was also selected by the Sunday Times as their cookery book of the year. Her following tomes, Veggiestan and Snackistan, published by Pavilion, have also received critical acclaim.
