Stuffed Flatbreads - Gutab | AZ Cookbook

Winter is the best time to make and savor these delicious flatbreads—stuffed with fresh greens, or ground meat and pomegranates, or pumpkin. Oh my! Recipes for all three variations are available in my cookbook, “Pomegranates & Saffron.”

Hello, first Links to Reads of the year. Here’s what I read this past month and I bookmarked to share with you. Enjoy!

* We all know China is a tea-rich country. But did you also know that the world’s oldest tea (plus the finest tea!) was discovered in an ancient Chinese Emperor’s Tomb?

* Pampered vegetables? Yes, such exist in America. They are suited for fine dining. Chefs around the country seek them eagerly  because to them, the presentation of their food is as important as their taste.

* Are you hard on yourself? An Important Meditation For Anyone Who’s Too Hard On Themselves. An important meditation of self-compassion comes to the rescue! A good read on what to do to be nicer to yourself. I personally need this sometimes myself. Click on the video that comes with the article. It’s quite entertaining.

* Melissa Clark’s interview with Kat Kinsman on trust and ethics in food blogging. Also on people’s craze about Pinterest, on favorite food bloggers, and more.

* National Geographic’s stunning collection of photos of the people around the world—from Mozambique to Kyrgyzstan—and the food they eat.
