In Mediterranean Street Food, Anissa Helou brings together some of the most memorable food in the world - everyday delicacies sold by street vendors or in simple shops. Interspersed with fascinating stories of her food adventures across the continents, Helou offers definitive recipes for favourites like Spanish tortilla, Italian panini, Morroccan tagines, Egyptian ful medammes, Turkish kebabs, and French pan bagnat. Brief introductions on the social and cultural histories of each country are followed by eight chapters divided by course or chief ingredient - recipes include soups, salads, and snacks, sandwiches, pizzas and breads, barbecues, one-pot meals, sweets and desserts and drinks. Each recipe in Mediterranean Street Food offers a delectable window into the rich food world of the Mediterranean, so that cooks as well as seasoned and armchair travellers alike can enjoy these unique culinary treats. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Can't be beat! 5 Aug 2006
By Janet Stansberry - Published on
I attended a cooking class in San Antonio with the author, and received the book with the class. Perfect combination of stories, photos and recipes. The recipes she has selected (how did she ever decide!) are well-written, and easily accomplished without spending a fortune on specialty ingredients or investing hours of time (unlike a Paula Wolfert cookbook, which leaves me feeling defeated before I have begun).

Great foods 4 Oct 2010
By GreatOutdoors - Published on
This book has the recipe for the best lamb kabob ever. That alone is worth the price of admission, but the tagines! I was making them in my crock pot and if you are used to watery bland food out of a crock-pot, try these tagines! I am buying it again because I gave my copy to my mom who really enjoyed making focaccia. Basically a huge variety of well researched, flavorful foods.

a food good to remember 12 April 2007
By D.Moraes - Published on
Verified Purchase
this is a book for people who traveled and know how those foods look like. Once this done , it is a good and very complete book full of interesting tips and recipes simple to be done, that take you back to those places. And if you don't want to cook just use it as a travel journal and enjoy your rememberings.

Pages missing from book (pages 167-198 inclusive) 2 April 2013
By K. Lapworth - Published on
Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, pages 167 to 198 inclusive (32 pages) were missing from the book I received. The book was undamaged and it appears that the pages were not included when assembled. I reside in Tasmania (Australia) and was unable to return the book to Amazon within the given time.

Other than this problem, I thought the book was good but that does not alter my disappointment.

This book really wasn't what I thought it would be and did not enjoy it very much. Would not buy it again.
