Product Description


"Mezze: Delicious Middle Eastern, Turkish and Greek Recipes" is a fabulous cook's collection of superbly presented culinary recipes for beloved Middle Eastern delicacies with Western (metric and traditional) measurements quoted for each recipe. In addition to delicious recipes and beautiful color photo illustrations of the food, there are wonderful stories, personal anecdotes, and memories of the experiences of the author tasting the foods, as well as inspiring quotations of rapturous musings about epicurean delights by famous Middle Eastern writers and wise men. "Mezze" is divided into 12 main chapters on nibbles, dips & sauces, stuffed pastries and leaves, fish, eggs, meat, chicken & poultry, vegetables, salads, rice and pulses, breads, drinks, and a glossary plus an introductory note about quantities and cooking times. "Mezze" is a timeless cookbook in many senses. Its recipes transcend years, cultures, continents, and histories; but also in order to fully experience the many styles of Middle Eastern cooking represented by the many recipes, the cook must approach time and cooking and preparation times in a somewhat flexible and different way. The author states early in the first chapter, "The one aspect common to all Middle Eastern recipes is their vagueness (p. 11)." This leads to new explorations by the creative and inventive cook. Incredible taste treats await the adventurous chef, from Stuffed Vine Leaves (hot), Greek Spinach and Cheese Pies, to Meatballs with Pine Nuts and Tomatoes, to Potato and Tomato Egg Pie, or Yogurt Cheese in Oil, or Broad Bean Patties (described as almost the national dish of Egypt), and of course, Rice with Lentils, Chick Peas with Spinach, Olive and Cheese Bread, and Chicken with Prunes, Honey, and Almonds. There is even a recipe for Grilled Quail, Stuffed Aubergines, Cucumber and Yogurt Salad, and Turkish Coffee. Recipes are presented in paragraph format, with ingredients and measurements listed first. A helpful Glossary of spices

5.0 out of 5 stars Mezze,Mezz 13 May 2000
By kristine koscove - Published on
loving to cook and being a great collector of cook books especially ethnic ones, this is a fabulous journey into mezze, which is an alternate to a huge meal, little bits of tasty treats to please the palate, with a glass of retsina, ozo, or wine, these tasty recipes are delicious, and very simple to prepare, it is a treasure of a book to have in my collection and a wonderful gift for the cook who seems to have it all!
