My favourite meals are the ones that come about after a lazy afternoon.
Seemingly springing up from thin air, they take little planning and can take as little - or as long - as you’d like to eat, allowing you to linger over half-filled plates and unfinished glasses of wine. They require small plates and good company.
My Middle Eastern Small Plates e-book is meant to facilitate exactly such meals. It is comprised of 11 vegetarian Middle Eastern recipes, some of them incredibly simple, others slightly more involved - but all go great with a glass of nice wine and some friends.
