I'm Kathryn Pauline, and Cardamom and Tea is a blog inspired by Assyrian food.
While some of the traditional dishes you'll find here are specific to Assyrian cuisine, many of them are shared by lots of different cultures, nations, and religions all over the Middle East (and the world!). Assyrians are primarily from Iraq, Syria, and Iran, but live all over the world in a diaspora.
While I love to share classic family recipes, I also include a lot of my own creations, inspired by traditional Middle Eastern dishes, ingredients, and techniques.
New photos and recipes every Thursday.
All posts, photographs, and recipes are by Kathryn Pauline, unless otherwise attributed.
