Across the world, food is an important part of any celebration, often rooted in years of traditions and memories and, whether religious or cultural, it is an intrinsic element that strengthens the bonds between family, community and society.
In the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the wider Arab world the festive vibe reaches its peak during the main Islamic celebrations of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.
Jacks Thomas, Director of the London Book Fair, the inspiration behind a fascinating new cookbook A Taste of Eid, together with the books recipe writer, Emma Marsden, and Sharjah cultural coordinator, Tasniem Roshdy, discuss the traditional recipes that are enjoyed with family and friends at this special time.
