Format: Hardcover
Now out in paperback version - see Saha: A Chef's Journey Through Lebanon and Syria. Saha ("Cheers!" - the name comes from the Arabic toast to good health; in these regions it seems that even Islamic prohibitions don't stop people from enjoying an alcoholic spirit called arak) is a book of the same format as the Malouf's Turquoise - part travelogue, part photo album, part recipe book.

As a result many of my criticisms of that other work also apply to this. However some of my peeves with that book are not so bad here. The dimensions of this book are considerably smaller so the bookself problem is not as great. The photography feels much more relevant - many of the photos are directly food related rather than just photos of old men sitting around smoking fags or kids in back streets, so although the photography still feels excessive in quantity it doesn't feel quite so totally irrelevant or obtrusive and can actually add to the food 'atmosphere'.

Some good recipes in here too. No middle eastern cookbook would be complete without muhammara, a red pepper, walnut and pomegranate dip which is the very ambrosia of the gods. There is also a version of this mixed with labneh (a thick yoghurt), but inexplicably doesn't describe a version mixed with tahini (which if I recall correctly from the excellent Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen is a speciality of Aleppo).

8 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Mahesh Maher on 7 Sept. 2007
Format: Hardcover
A beautiful book as much at home on the coffee table as it is in the kitchen. I love the foods of this region, fresh vegetables, meats and daily bought bread with spices and citrus' in abundance.

The pictures of everyday life in a place unravaged by tourism, still wary of it's proximity to places of upheaval. You could almost feel safe going there it seems. A place where East starts to meet West culturally and palataciously :) The stunning scenery, warm people and delicious food beckon the unwary adventurer.
