Assyrian

If you’re looking for Assyrian recipes, you’ve found the right blog! Not only am I 100% Assyrian, but I’m also the author of Mom’s Authentic Assyrian Recipes. Mom was the best cook out of all the ladies in our family. I was lucky enough to spend years studying her in the kitchen. I think some of that talent must have rubbed off! When people tell me that my cooking reminds them of my mom’s, I feel truly honored and humbled!

If you don’t find the recipe you’re looking for, all you have to do is be a little patient. New recipes are added weekly. If you are in a hurry, shoot me a message and I’ll do my best to get it to you! So be sure to subscribe to my email list so that you are notified when new recipes are added.
