A true gem of a book that is inspiring the team at Rare Pear, with such an exotic journey. Aniss Helou draws on a wealth of childhood memories to create this mouth-watering collection. Originally from Beirut and Syria, this recipe book features Helou's favourites from soups and mezze to meat, fish and sweet pastries and preserves, as well as moving stories from throughout her life that transport you to the Mediterranean.  

Levant, or rising of the sun, is the crossroads where western Asia, eastern Mediterranean and northwest Africa meet.
