In some respects, the recipes in Imad Alarnab’s debut cookbook, named after his recently relocated Kingly Court restaurant in London’s Soho, are secondary to the author’s story of journeying as a refugee from his hometown of Damascus in Syria to London in 2015. Alarnab's story is heartbreaking and humbling, with pages of key Syrian ingredients sitting next to the story of his brutal beating by Syrian police. Imad now runs an acclaimed restaurant in London, which was named GQ ’s ‘Best Breakthrough Restaurant 2022’.We have noticed you are using an adblocker and – although we support freedom of choice – we would like to ask you to enable ads on our site.
