About the Author

Silvena Rowe was born and raised in the ancient city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, just three hundred miles from Istanbul. Her Turkish father instilled in her a love of cooking, and he passed down, as generations had before him, the traditions of the Ottoman cuisine. Rowe is the executive chef at Quince at the iconic May Fair Hotel in London. A popular British television personality, she is a regular guest on the BBC's Saturday Kitchen and ITV's This Morning. She has written for the Guardian and served as a consultant on the David Cronenberg film Eastern Promises. Her first book, Feasts, won the Glenfiddich Food and Drink Award. She lives in London, England.

Praise For…

“Equal parts rustic and elegant, Rowe’s is a borderless cuisine of za’atar and lemon zest, chile and cumin, marked by vibrant flavors, bright colors, and heady aromas.” — Bon Appétit
