Since the focus of this month has primarily been Moroccan cuisine, I thought it was time to taste some of the more exotic and complicated Middle Eastern dishes I have encountered during some of my reading. Since a trip to Morocco is not in my near future, a friend and I entrusted this experience to the chefs at Saffron in downtown Minneapolis. “First-rate comfort food, certainly, but chef Sameh Wadi’s contemporary interpretation of the genre — and his million-dollar nose for seasoning — propel them far beyond home cooking.” says the Star Tribune. This is also true in their drinks. I recommend the “Sunrise in Turkey”, which combines house infused orange vodka, citrus and pomegranate liqueur.
