Heavenly Bites is the first multinational Muslim cookbook that features the best of Muslim cooking to be found from Morocco to Bangladesh, served up by Karimah bint Dawood, the television presenter and cook and convert to Islam. Featuring fifty recipes for soups, salads, snacks and starters, smoothies, main courses, and sweets, it assembles dishes for all occasions from the international Muslim world. Each recipe is charmingly introduced by Karimah and an index is provided for quick and simple referencing.
With an eclectic Asian, African, Scottish, and English heritage, Karimah bint Dawood is widely traveled and well-versed in global cuisines and cultures. She has worked as a make-up artist for Gucci, Revlon, and Brides magazine, and has traveled and worked as a fashion model around the world, during which time she developed her interest in world cooking. After converting to Islam, Karimah put down her brushes and white stilettos for a while and picked up the henna cone and the Qur'an.
"The book [Heavenly Bites] is one more reminder of the fact that religions often share many areas of common ground, and it's hard to think of one more basic than food." —Bill Tammeus, Faith Matters Blog
