Practical elegance, 26 July 2008
Arto der Harotounian's book is far more than a collection of recipes - it is an introduction to the culture of the Middle East.
The recipes themselves - backed up with serving suggestions, proverbs, anecdotes and reminiscences - sound mouth-watering and are easy to follow.
The author's obvious love of his subject makes this book a delight.
