Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Ooh, that looks both beautiful and so tasty that I feel like licking the screen. ( I'm not familiar with zataar - will search!)

Oh, what beautiful images -- and the food looks mouth-wateringly good. I've recently cooked a few things from the Jerusalem cookbook, and all have turned out wonderful -- I'm excited to try more. Wish I were there for dinner! :-)

What an appetite stimulant this is! I'm off to the kitchen.

Now that is an art that I can truly appreciate. Excuse me! I have a chicken curry from Chettinad cooking in the kitchen. And Lucy is ooohing and aaaahing!
