Today on the roll for Cook the book Friday: Tabbouleh from the cookbook My Paris Kitchen (David Leibovitch). I've a confession to make, I've never had tabbouleh before. Like a foodie that almost seems impossible.
When reading and preparing the recipe I found that the bulgur was such a small bit of this recipe. It almost seemed lost in all the parsley. Because I've never had it before I went to do some research on the internet (I was really early with preparing the recipe, so the C&C's Tabbouleh wasn't even open yet. In other recipes I've found that the bulgur amount was higher. And after pre tasting, I thought I liked it with more of a bulgur bite, so I've added some extra.
After photographing (and yes, sometimes we eat our food a bit colder than other people because everything first has to get on the photo (my children won't like that habit ;-)) I took a moment for myself and tried this salad for lunch.
And it was quite a eyeopener. I really loved the taste and flavors. I was glad that I add some extra bulgur though, because that seems, for me at least, even better. But I'm sure a Tabbouleh lover from now on. And off course I'm curious how the other members of the cook the book Friday group experienced this recipe.
If you also love to take part of our cook group, we're currently cooking from My Paris Kitchen (David Leibovitch) and Every Day (Dorie Greenspan), join us at cook the book fridays.
Next time we're cooking from My Paris Kitchen, the recipe for comté and ham wafers. I will place this recipe around December 7th. I'm looking forward to it.
