A Recipe with 3 Ingredients? Easy!
We are so excited to have just released our new book ‘The Feast Goes On’ in Australia and we are enjoying the feedback of what everyone is cooking from the book.
We love it!! It will be released in the U.S.A and the U.K in a few months’ time.
This month’s #letslunch is all about recipes with THREE ingredients, and we’ve chosen a lovely simple sweet which dates back many generations.
This recipe comes from the late Jack Sages. Jack was the sixth generation of his family to be born in Turkey, after his ancestors were driven out of Spain during the Spanish Inquisition. He loved to cook, having learnt from his mother and sister who were both great cooks. Jack lived in Sydney with his wife and companion of 55 years, artist Jenny Sages, until he passed away in 2010.
Jack’s memory lives on in the recipes and stories he left behind.
Thanks Alan Benson for the gorgeous photo of the sesame sweet (on the right) and the basboussa (a sweet semolina cake, recipe in the book!) on the left.
