Great news for friends of AZ Cookbook in Azerbaijan!

– You can now pre-order my cookbook, Pomegranates and Saffron, online, without paying any shipping fees! 

Once the book is out, you can pick up your copy from a designated place (to be determined later) in Baku. In this case, you will only pay the special pre-order price of $35 (regular price $38) and no shipping. Simply enter the number of books you would like to pre-order HERE, choose Azerbaijan to calculate the shipping cost and voila – free local pickup option will come out. This is a great deal! NOTE –this promotion will ONLY run through the end of August!

– If you miss this opportunity or if you want to wait and buy your book later: Pomegranates and Saffron will be available in Baku‘s famous Ali & Nino bookstores around end of October! You will be able to buy your copy of this limited first edition there. Note that the special pre-order price of $35 will not be applicable in this case.

Thank you for your kind support, friends! Looking forward to your receiving my cookbook and cooking with me!
