Nancy Mehagian: Siren's Feast, An Edible Odyssey - Shelfari

Nancy Mehagian: Siren's Feast, An Edible Odyssey - Shelfari

This is a very interesting book that covers all sorts of adventures! The writer details her life growing up in an Armenian American family and how she digressed from her family to move half way around the world to carry on her life. She opened the first vegetarian restaurant in Spain and showcased her many wonderful recipes. (The book features many of her speciality recipes!) Ms. Mehagian speaks of life in different cultures, whether it be the physical location, religion, or socially. I have learned so much about the various cultures mentioned in this book.

Some of my more favorite parts of this book include the recipes (of which I have yet to try but plan to...I'm not much of a cook) as well as the home remedies that she mentions. She also interested me in her line of work dealing with Jin Shin Jyutsu.

I recommend this book to anyone with culinary interests and those looking to research various cultures. This book was thoroughly enlightening!

  1. this book sounds really interesting. I love learning about other cultures and reading about food. Like you, I'm not a great cook but it doesn't stop me from dreaming of being a great one someday!!
