Dimah was born and raised in Syria and writes about Syrian cuisine.
She says her recipes and cooking techniques are unique and will never be found in any other cookbook, “because Syrians learn recipes from their mothers and grandmothers”.
Dimah really seems to know what she’s talking about. She shares stories and the background behind each dish. Her recipes are very easy to follow and you can truly feel her love for Syria and its food. #ToAleppoWithLove
