The book I mentioned is call A Biblical Feast by Kitty Morse. There are a couple of editions of it out there – originally published in the late 1990s, it’s been reprinted at least a couple of times since then. Morse grew up Anglican in a middle eastern country. She tells the story of how, while reading the Bible, she noticed that the foods described in the biblical times were very much like the traditional foods she grew up eating at home. She decided to piece together this cookbook both to introduce us to traditional middle eastern cuisine as well as to introduce us to food as it is discussed throughout the Bible. It is a cool resource to have – especially as we gear up to celebrate Holy Week.
