Shane DeliaGÇÖs Spice Journey takes us on a culinary pilgrimage to explore his heritage and discover food traditions that go back thousands of years. From the old Phoenician outpost of Malta, where the aromatics and spices of the Middle East mingle with the European traditions of the Mediterranean, Shane heads across the sea to Lebanon, the original Land of Milk and Honey and birthplace of contemporary Middle Eastern mezze. And finally Shane follows the time-worn caravan trails of the spice route to ancient Persia, aka IranGÇªhome to saffron, pomegranate and rose water. And the oldest surviving recipes on earth. Inspired by medieval Arab and Persian recipes passed down through generations as well as rural and regional contemporary cuisines of Lebanon and Iran, Shane then heads back to his Melbourne kitchen to put his unique take on some of the worldGÇÖs most ancient and influential culinary traditions.
