I am honored once again to have Sasha Martin adapt recipes from The Silk Road Gourmet for her explorations of global cuisines at Global Table Adventure. This past week she has cooked three recipes from Pakistan from Volume One of my book: Rice with Pine Nuts and Garlic, Mixed Bean Salad and Sweet Coffee with Cinnamon and Cardamom. The dishes have never looked more beautiful treated with Sasha’s great food styling expertise.
The rice dish is a family favorite and the mixed bean salad is both delicious AND a summer picnic crowd pleaser. My mother swears by the Mixed Bean Salad and makes it for many of their gatherings, and the coffee is a delicious way to end a meal! Check out Sasha’s adaptations and also the recipes in the book. They are easy to make and fantastic additions to your table. (Words in stub by Laura Kelley. Photos of Pakistani Dishes by Sasha Martin and Global Table Adventure).
