In Orient Expressed, Dr. Sana S. Hećo takes Levantine cuisine to a whole new level of culinary innovation, expression, and health benefits by using the principles of natural medicine and modern raw food techniques. This one-of-a-kind cookbook offers more than 100 recipes in which the most popular and well-loved savory and sweet Oriental delicacies are made plant-based, raw and healthy, without losing their authentic flavors and appeal.

With beautiful texts and food styling by the author, mouth-watering photographies by the internationally acclaimed photographer Maja Topčagić, and superlative design by Sandin Međedović, this book is meant to be inviting, inspiring and uplifting, whether you are just leafing through it, reading about an herb or an ingredient that you did not know much about before, or actually attempting to make a recipe.

In the words of the author :

” Orient Expressed is my love letter to food. Food as holistic art, created to nourish and thrill. To sustain the body and the soul, thus keeping them vital, vibrant and connected. In my eyes, this is the true purpose of food.

Orient Expressed is also a story about coming home after a long journey away. It is a story of remembering, affirming and celebrating the values of that truly matter – to me and to anyone who recognizes, believes, and revels in abundant diversity as the blessed natural order of things in life and this wondrous world we live in.

In the spirit of genuine Oriental hospitality, I invite you to take a raw food journey with me into the Levant and beyond. I hope you will enjoy – and maybe even be surprised to see – what this table spread can offer.

As the Arabs say when they welcome guests into their home: Ahlan we sahlan!”
