Bison Delights: Middle Eastern Cuisine, Western Style
Author: Habeeb Salloum
Format: Paperback
, 2010
  • Habeeb Salloum spent his childhood on the Saskatchewan prairies, the son of Syrian homesteaders who thrived during the depression and drought of the 1930s by growing the dryland crops of their homeland. In this cookbook, Salloum returns not only to his childhood home, but to the historical sustainer of life on the prairies—the bison.

    For thousand of years, the indigenous peoples of the prairies relied on the bison for clothing, shelter, tools, and food. The arrival of Europeans to the West nearly wiped out the bison population, but over the past several decades, through conservation and re-population efforts, bison numbers have increased. Bison ranches can now be found across North America.

    Inspired by the increasing availability of bison meat, Mr. Salloum, an expert in Arab cuisine, has adapted over 100 recipes from the Middle East for use with this historical Prairie staple now being re-discovered across North America. Amateur and professional chefs alike will welcome the opportunity to add these straightforward, thorough, and easy-to-follow recipes to their culinary repertoires.
