Table Tales

For all food and travel lovers, this unique cookbook is the first to present Abu Dhabi as a culinary crossroads—where the global goes local—and to highlight the people making it happen.

Table Tales, The Global Nomad Cuisine of Abu Dhabi is far more than a cooking book. Author Hanan Sayed Worrell offers up a taste of the cosmopolitan community of the city. Rooted in a Bedouin desert culture, Abu Dhabi has been at the crossroads of East and West for millennia. For most visitors and newcomers to the city, however, life beyond the tourist attractions is an enigma. Hanan takes the reader through the city, for an intimate glimpse into the homes of Emiratis as well as residents from Syria to Spain, India to Italy, Afghanistan to the Americas.

With various food, architecture, city life and portrait photos by Martin Nicholas Kunz & Heike Fademrecht

The book is published by Rizzoli USA
