In Lebanon the table is always full. Soups, salads, mezze and main dishes are all served at the same time and shared around, and there is always bread on the table. The recipes in this book are traditional, based on home-style cooking using straightforward techniques and easy to obtain ingredients. You can entertain for all tastes and appetites by serving a selection of dishes from the various chapters.
