When the Jews fled Iraq for Israel, they could not take their material possessions with them, but did take their rich cuisine. Delicious dishes like Smack ab Thum oo Rihan (Garlic and Basil Fish) and Burekas im Gevina veh Tered (Feta and Spinach Pie) are included in this unique book. Jewish Iraqi aphorisms and beautiful photographs complete this presentation of the foods of the Iraqi Jews. As the saying goes, Man yakle al ein au el'thum (Who desires the food, the eyes or the mouth?).
