Inspired by deli culture and modern cafe cuisine, Alimentari presents delicious, attainable Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food (with some cheffy touches).

Divided into morning, midday and later, the chapters cover breakfast and brunch, light salads and mains, takeaways and sitting in, and finishes with pickles, preserves and condiments. From a Spanish tortilla, confit potato and caramelised onion to semolina porridge with rhubarb compote; kibbeh wraps to risoni pasta; suckling pig and fennel lasagne to Portugese fish stew; and fig and marscapone tartin to baklava, there is something to entice and excite any palate.

Accompanied with stunning food photography, this book will resonate with food lovers around the world. The recipes celebrate wholesome ingredients, accessible techniques and traditional flavours.
