I had got used to things cooked with spices and yogurt in Damascus so I was interested in the few little jars of spices on Granny’s shelf, and she always had yogurt for our breakfast. There were caraway seeds that she added to cabbage and cakes, cinnamon for puddings, and cayenne pepper for cheesy things, so one day I persuaded her to try them with my favourite meal - roast chicken.
