Joon: Persian Cooking Made Simple

Najmieh's fans have been making meals from her Food of Life for more than 30 years.

We hope these books inspire you to try something new, get out of your comfort zone, or simply bring some spice to your life. Come in and try them out. Look at their breath-taking photos, pick a nationality or go for something that is simply halal (for those of you non-Muslims out there, that is the Muslim equivalent of Jewish kosher, but much, much simpler to follow). Either way, you are in for a treat.
