Welcome to the "Mom's Authentic Assyrian Recipes Cookbook" website. Whether you stumbled here by accident, or after a long search for your favorite Assyrian recipe, I'm glad you're here! This site was created to promote my book and to introduce you to Assyrian food and the Assyrian culture.

If you are Assyrian, you already know how difficult it is to get a recipe of your favorite dish from your mother. There are usually no written recipes to speak of. As we lose our treasured older generation, we lose a wealth of knowledge. And as a result, the dishes we grew up enjoying will only live on in our memories.

Many Assyrians, myself included, have married non-Assyrians and have melded into other cultures. Instead of cooking our traditional food, we settle for pizza or macaroni and cheese. My aim is to preserve one aspect of our culture, our wonderful food!

Take some time to navigate through the site, and maybe print a sample recipe. I have never met anyone who did not love mom's cooking. Once you have tasted Assyrian food, you will find yourself wanting more. When you find yourself in that predicament, come back and purchase the book, or maybe a PDF of your favorite recipe!

God bless you and your family!
