Saveur magazine (issue 161, December 2013, p. 24) chooses Delights from the Garden of Eden as one of top 10 best cookbooks for the year 2013.
“Nasrallah's authoritative Iraqi cookbook features regional
recipes such as allspice sausages, turnips simmered in date syrup, and dill
cookies. Asides on history and folklore, as well as 10th-century food poems,
add rich cultural context.” —Felicia Campbell
