Suqar is the Arabic word for sugar, so just take a guess what this stunningly illustrated cookbook might be about. Written by celebrated food writers Greg Malouf and Lucy Malouf, SUQAR is a celebration of the distinctive flavours of Middle Eastern desserts: tahini, pistachios, orange blossom, rose water and lots and lots of spice. With more than 100 recipes split into ten different chapters – including frozen desserts, cakes, cookies, pastries, doughnuts and more – this book is also beautifully photographed and designed. A must-have for any sweet treat obsessive or Middle Eastern cuisine enthusiast.
Greg Malouf and Lucy Malouf are the co-authors of eight award-winning food books. Greg is an authority on Middle Eastern food who divides his time between Melbourne, London and Dubai. Lucy is a food and travel writer and editor based in Kent. They are the co-authors of several books including SUQAR, which won the prestigious James Beard award in the dessert category in 2019.
