The Baghdad Cookbook
Alan Boyd with Robbie Stevenson & Scott Grieg
This is a powerful book that beautifully describes the tension, bravery, and honour of security contractors working and living in the most dangerous area on earth at the time: Iraq.
Added to the action-packed and hair-raising danger of the authors' work as security operators(PSDS), CPOs, guards or transport workers in Iraq are the delightful recipes created by the contractors themselves and enjoyed during downtime.
This book is a look into the window of a security contractor's daily life in Iraq, where every day could easily be their last, yet it is not a grim book, but one filled with camaraderie, hope, humour and courage. This is a beautiful tribute to all who serve or have served in the military.
You will have to try every recipe! They all look absolutely delicious.
