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.

The following recipes are the most popular Assyrian recipes on this blog:
