Sally Butcher’s Middle eastern books have been slightly overshadowed by younger, more telegenic cookbook authors of late. But Sally is a true character, a red haired fiery whirlwind of energy, who spreads the word about great Middle Eastern food from the depths of urban Peckham. She’s a shopkeeper as well as a chef and writer and does all of them equally well. She’s funny too.
