Product Description

Review

"The capital’s best meze" (Elle)

"We love Comptoir Libanais … not only for its delicious Lebanese fast food but for its stylish surroundings" (Vogue)

"Tony Kitous is central London’s king of Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine" (Restaurant Magazine)

"The new Luxe!" (The Daily Telegraph)

"

‘[Lepard] and Kitous have produced a stylish cookbook that tells the secrets of Kitous’s kitchen.

When you know Kitous arrived in Britain at the age of 18 with £70 in his pocket, a love of home cooking and no chef’s training at all, his achievements are truly extraordinary.’

" (Rose Prince The Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

Tony Kitous put glamour into Middle Eastern cuisine at his London restaurants Levant and Kenza. He has now brought Lebanese home style to the high street with Comptoir Libanais.

Some good recipes in here that aren't just your typical hummus/baba ghanoush/chicken tagine. Good selection of drinks recipes as well. Unfortunately, two things about this book which really let it down; tons of pictures (far outweigh number of recipes!) and some pictures show of delicious looking food but no recipe is included (like the pumpkin cheesecake!).

Dessert section is a real let down. I'm an Arab, I've grown up on Arab desserts, I've eaten at Comptoir and seen their selection of Arabic desserts so why no baklava, muhallabiya, konafa, etc.? Two of the dessert recipes are jams and then frozen yoghurt, marzipan stuffed dates and a couple more forgettable things.

What an amazing cookbook. We love Lebanese food but thought it was complicated to make at home, but we were wrong. Simple recipes, easy to follow, very impressed with this cookbook. We even had a lebanese dinner party using recipes from this book and it was a great success. Highly recommended.

Le Comptoir is one of our favourite restaurants in London and I really looked forward to getting this book. When I discovered that it was co-authored by Dan Lepard, I was delighted - Dan has written one of the best books of baking ("Short and Sweet") that I've ever read.

Unfortunately, the recipes in this book don't seem to produce the same results as the dishes in the restaurant. All the dishes from the restaurant are in here, it's just that they don't seem to make as good a result. I've tried a few now and none of them were particularly good. The baba ganoush is good enough, the hummus okay, the halloumi flatbreads not good at all. One recipe that I did really like was the homemade lemonade.

Recipes are clearly laid out, well written and easy to follow. Photography is nice and the layout of the book is good.

It's not a bad book by any means, and is worth trying if you are interested in Lebanese and Levantine cuisine, but at the same time there are better books out there.

Its a great book, great pictures, a lot of inspiration.. however, i felt like some recipes missed out some key information, as if the author was keep some secrets to themselves.. however, i did try some of the recipes and they went down extremely well.. it just that others were missing some technical tips.. i would recommend it regardless, especially if you are an experienced cook, who can figure some stuff out for yourself.
