I like the book but its focus is on one type of Iraqi cooking. I would have liked to have seen a wider variety of dishes.

so many instantly recognisable dishes, I didn't know where to begin. What a joy to now be able to cook the meals I eat as a child in Iraq

I saw this book on Amazon and ONLY bought it becasue it had great reviews, The first few pages of the book containted way too much information about the authors family, Iraqi history and Culture and traditions. (i thought I bought a cook book not a biography/history book) whilst some people may like that sort of thing I just wanted the recipes. Finally by page 20 the book got into cooking and it was FANTASTIC from that point onwards. Each dish had the english name for the dish, the Arabic name (bonus as you also get to learn some Arabic vocabulary) a section for ingredients, another section for preperation and a foot note for variations in the recipe. Most of the recipes are fitted onto one page and the opposit page shows a large size picture of the end product i.e THE DISH. Overall, I think the book is very good, it has lots of appetizers, rice dishes and meat dishes but not enough vegetarian. I would definately recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn Iraqi cooking.

Extremely Pleased 27 Oct 2012
By Kaye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My husband is from Mosul,Iraq. He has lived in the USA since 1958, but has vivid and fond memories of his years growing up in Mosul and Baghdad. I ordered this cookbook for him as a gift. To say he was pleased is an understatement! The photos and especially the section of historical facts about Iraq took him on a mind-journey back to his childhood and homeland. He is so happy that each recipe, although written in English, has the Arabic name for that particular dish. We have tried many of the recipes, some of which my husband could prepare almost without the book because the dishes and foods are so familiar to him. We have ordered seven copies of the book and sent them to various family members with the hope that they will enjoy it as much as we have. I am happy to have discovered such a publication with so much meaning for our family. Kudos to author Kay Karim for putting together this beautiful cookbook!

But somebody has to point this out! 11 Sep 2012
By a reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This would be my second attempt to express my opinion in a review regarding the issue. The first review attracted a couple of harsh threatening remarks, which I reported to amazon as abuse and chose to delete it. So here we go again:
This review is specifically on the pictorial aspect of the book's production. The book's description promises 100 color beautiful photographs throughout. Leafing through the book, however, I was so much disappointed with the shabby production of the images, almost a third of them, all depicting dishes, are regrettably of substandard quality. Some fuzzy, some out of focus, some oddly lit (for example: pp. 32, 48, 70, 74, 82, 106, 112,152, 173, 174, 184, 186, 188, 202, 211, 219, 220, 234, 235). In short, unappetizing, which defeats the whole point of including color photos in a cookbook. This book is done by a well-known publisher with a long history in the field, and this shabbiness is unacceptable.
For those seeking recipes, they need not be bothered by this, as there are a good number of them offered, along with some basic background and brief commentaries on the recipes, at a very reasonable price. However, a few textual inaccuracies need to be mentioned here: It was not Genghis Khan who led the Mongol invasion of Iraq in 1258 but his grandson Hulagu Khan (p. 8). The ancient Mesopotamians did not use the precious wheat for their beer, they used barley (p. 8). In the recipes, the text consistently confuses wheat with barley: habbiyya is not pearl barley but pearl wheat (81, 144), whole wheat is not `shaeer' but `hunta' (p. 249).

FASCINATING Book! 13 Nov 2012
By Behar Godani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As someone who's trying to eat healthier and more organic food, I try to limit my meat intake as much as possible and this book is the BEST book ive found! Yeah, there are a lot of meat recipes but there are just as many vegan ones! soups with eggplants, okra, cabbage and potatos, sides that include the most perfect rice, bulgar and couscous, TONS of salad options and recipes and the desserts? *swoons* i'm in heaven! Some are made with dates or date syrup, others include rice pudding made from scratch and so smooth and creamy and hot it's just perfect for a rainy day! This book is worth every single penny! Healthy, TASTY, and oh so easy to make!
