Book Review: Apricots on the Nile by Colette Rossant

Updated: Dec 20, 2021




Collette Rossant's memoir of her childhood in Old Cairo. An easy read I finished over a Shabbat afternoon in the sun while the boys napped upstairs.

I love food memoirs. People sharing their life stories and the all-important recipes and food moments that permeate the memories. I too treasure my own food memories, though, like most people I don't deem them worthy of a memoir (maybe some other bits of my life might be worthy of one...), that being said I am glad Rossant wrote her's.
