I'm Kathryn, and Cardamom and Tea is a blog dedicated to Assyrian food.
I was born in the United States, and my family is from Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. The Assyrian nation is a diaspora, or a group of people dispersed in many different places, so our cuisine is always transforming and diverging.
While some of the traditional dishes you'll find here are specific to Assyrian culture, many of them are shared by lots of different cultures all over the Middle East and around the world. I also include a lot of my own creations, inspired by traditional Middle Eastern dishes, ingredients, and techniques.
Each recipe posted to Cardamom and Tea has been tested several times to ensure that you can replicate the results in your own home. I sincerely hope you love everything you try! Please feel free to contact me if you ever have feedback.
New photos and recipes every Wednesday and Sunday.
