Roses seem to be the traditional flower for Valentine’s; they are such a beautiful flower but as I’m all about the food – I prefer to eat them! Using rosewater and rose petals was something very new for me (other than a Turkish delight bar as a child) when I started cooking Middle Eastern food. I love the flavour it brings to both sweet and savoury food. Check out our favourite rosewater recipes below.
This pudding (pictured) is usually sold in small stalls along the roadside in Israel. It reminds me of the summer and visits to the beach. It’s simple to prepare as long as you keep stirring the cornflour pudding base on a gentle heat and can be made the day before serving. This makes approx. five puddings.
