I'm Kathryn, and Cardamom and Tea is a blog dedicated to Assyrian food.


Assyrians are a Christian minority indigenous to the Middle East, living in a diaspora scattered around the world. Because of this history, Assyrian food is constantly changing to include new cuisines, while rooted in ancient dishes.

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, nations, and religions all over the Middle East. I also include a lot of my own creations, inspired by traditional Middle Eastern dishes, ingredients, and techniques.

Each Cardamom and Tea recipe 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!

New photos and recipes every Wednesday and Sunday.
