Day of Honey is a new book by author Annia Ciezadlo. The writing is a Memoir of Food, Love, and War, called a “a winsome new memoir” by the New York Times Arts section.
In the fall of 2003, Ciezadlo spent her honeymoon in Baghdad, Iraq. Over the next six years, while living in Baghdad and Beirut, she broke bread with Shiites and Sunnis, warlords and refugees, matriarchs and mullahs.
Day of Honey is the story of her journey for food and friendship, what she’d refer to as a communion that feeds the soul as much as the body in times of war. The book is woven with recipes and glimpses into Middle Eastern kitchens… truly marrying history and cuisine with firsthand reporting in the face of everyday survival.
Day of Honey brings to light the vibrant human culture and unique cuisine of a region that has been overshadowed by constant violence. A book worth a look.
