After deciding to prepare shishbarak for a friend’s visit, a young woman refers to her mother’s cookbook to remind her how the recipe goes. Memories of her mother’s at times exasperating presence overwhelm her so that it’s as though the woman is right there in the kitchen with her. ‘Shishbarak’ gently and humourously captures the wonderful effects of spending time with loved ones, even if they aren’t actually there.
