About the author
Before Robin Daumit ever set foot on her first trip, multi-ethnic foods were already being prepared in her mother's kitchen. An American born Syrian, her mother brought a rainbow of foods to the home Robin grew up in, as she shared her kitchen with her many girlfriends of various ethnic heritages.
As a grown woman, Robin discovered there were few things she couldn't cook. Her taste buds were first awakened as a child, and throughout her life, travels and intimate encounters with her curiosity, she simply built on a tongue that had already been passionately well-formed for flavor, as a child.
Cooking, for Robin, has become more than food. A celebration of people, stories, laughter, flavors and techniques from a collage of life's excursions, have been richly shared with all who have had the fortuity to dine at her hand. She continues to share her effervescence through blogs, videos, television and now her first cookbook; something you can hold in your hand, dog-ear pages, and experience the heart-felt stories shared throughout her recipes as though you were sitting right there in her kitchen.
