Excellent value, could not now live without! The cotton backing is an improvement re. not slipping and also cuts down the price. The silk side is excellent quality and size spot on for regular pillowcases. Wash with care but easy if one follows basis rules for silk and I found hand wash better than machine washing. However, essential to leave them out of the sunlight!
This is the perfect book for beginners re. middle eastern cuisine and an useful book re. reference for anyone who enjoys the food. As always, written in clear and enticing style by the redoubtable Claudia Roden.
OK simply that. There are better books on the subject e.g. Roden, Hartounian etc. etc. ets. Nice illustrations but I bought it to enlarge my knowledge of middle eastern and fusion and it did not achieve this for me.
