Abla in print again!

Great news for lovers of Abla's Lebanese cooking!  The Penguin website has an forthcoming announcement that Abla's Lebanese kitchen will be published in hardback as part of the Lantern imprint in 2010. Abla Amad's The Lebanese kitchen was published by Penguin under the Viking imprint in 2001 and was very soon being re-printed and then out of print.  It is not clear from the forthcoming promo whether this is simply a reprint or whether it will be a new edition. That the title is different makes one live in hope.  The Lantern imprint is the one which recently published Stephanie Alexander's Kitchen garden companion in time for the Christmas market.   That's to Pat Miller for this headsup!

I love Abla's food and only last night cooked lemon and garlic chicken drummettes made according to her recipe for chicken wings.  For those of you who don't know Abla, her eponymous Lebanese restaurant has been a Melbourne institution for years.

I recommend you check out cook books by Najmieh Batmanglij or Maideh Mazda. They both write Persian (Iranian) recipes and I have used only Mazda's but I have also looked at Batmanglij's and both have wonderful recipes!
