The Book

Pomegranates

by Ann Kleinberg
Ten Speed Press (Random House)
2004, 112 Pages

The first and ONLY cookbook dedicated to the pomegranate!

Every recipe (over 60!) uses some part of the pomegranate fruit – the seeds, the juice or the syrup. And every recipe is user-friendly and includes helpful hints and serving suggestions.

The soft-cover version of Pomegranates includes an Introduction entitled “Pomegranate — An Extraordinary Gift from Nature, offering a brief description of the place of pomegranates in history and culture; a chapter entitled From Orchard to Table describing the selections and storage of pomegranates, helpful tips and some basic recipes.

The book is divided into courses: Starters and Soups, Salads and Side Dishes, Main Courses and Dessert & Drinks. The book’s emphasis is on healthful ingredients that are readily available. Some of the recipes are based on traditional ethnic cuisine — Persian, Syrian-Jewish and Lebanese for instance. Other recipes are variations of popular dishes like Spareribs in Pomegranate Barbecue Sauce or Tuna Asparagus and Pomegranate Stir Fry.

Luscious desserts like white and dark chocolate mousse are included, with pomegranates added in of course. Even the classic Napoleon is treated to a pomegranate upgrade. And as homage to those girls we miss so from “Sex and the City” there’s Pomegranate Margarita and Pomegranate Campari

Oh just trust us, buy the book — you’ll love it!
