The chef, Ahmet, lets Colette taste the ful- she learns how to make sambusaks for her new friends- and she shops for semits and other treats in the Khan-al-Khalili market. Colette is beginning to understand how her familys culture is linked to the kitchen...and soon she will claim Egypts food, landscape, and people as her own.Apricots on the Nile is a loving testament to Colettes adopted homeland.

With dozens of original recipes and family photographs, Colettes coming-of-age memoir is a splendid exploration of old Cairo in all its flavor, variety, and wide-eyed wonder.
