Sumayya Usmani : Mountain Berries & Desert Spice
June 17 at 6:15 pm - 7:15 pm
After her wonderful event last year on her acclaimed debut cookery book, Summers Under the Tamarind Tree, Sumayya continues her journey of discovery through the exotic cuisine of her native Pakistan, sharing the secrets of her home country’s incredible and varied desserts and sweets. Mountain Berries and Desert Spice is a glorious tour around the culinary wonders of the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains, where berries and fruits grow in abundance, down to the Punjab with its gorgeous rice and grain-based desserts, and on to the fragrances of the Arabian Sea in the south where saffron and cardamom-laced sweet recipes are much loved. Sumayya is a wonderful enthusiast for the cuisine of her native land and we can’t wait to welcome her back to Melrose.
