"I want to make every recipe in this book. . . . And you should, too!"--David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen and Ready for Dessert

Comforting breads, buns, pastries, cakes, cookies, and other baked delights from the Middle East

There's always something sweet in the oven at Honey & Co., the tiny restaurant in London where the day is marked by what comes out of the pastry section. In the morning, sticky buns are stuffed full of cherries and pistachios; loaves of rich dough are rolled with chocolate, hazelnuts, and cinnamon. Lunch is a crisp, crumbly shell of pastry filled with spiced lamb or burnt eggplant, and at teatime there are cheesecakes and fruitcakes, small cakes, and massive cookies-so many treats that it's hard to choose one. And after dinner? Poached peaches with roses, something sweet and salty drenched in orange blossom syrup, or maybe even a piece of fresh marzipan.

This is the magic of Middle Eastern soul food. This is Golden.
