Colourful tabbouleh made of parsley, tomatoes and bulgur, falafel on hummus, chicken breast with garlic and coriander, and, for dessert, »nightingales’ nests« with rice noodles, pistachio and treacle, accompanied by Arabian coffee with cardamom.

This is the taste of Damascus, and the richness and colour of the cuisine reflect Damascene culture and history. Rafik Schami and his sister, Marie Fadel, portray the houses of God and magnificent buildings erected by Christians, Jews and Muslims, the souks and hammams, the carpet dealers and spice traders, and friends and relatives whose life stories are as full of surprises as the crooked alleys of the old town of Damascus. A cultural and culinary delicacy that melts in your mouth.
