This book is utterly divine. I bought it a number of years ago and used it for the first time to cater for a party - the food went down an absolute storm. I've recently rediscovered it and have begun cooking from it once more and it's every bit as wonderful as I remember. Today, for example, I tried the Barbari bread (amazing) and the other day tried the Almond Delight. I really cannot wait to get stuck in to more of this wonderful cuisine. If you love middle eastern food, Iranian food has quite an unusual twist with some of the flavours, then this book is for you. It is expensive, but personally I consider it an investment!
I wholly recommend trying to get hold of the specialised ingredients (I use an excellent place based near Ladbroke Grove in London, who do mail order and stock some of the more unusual ingredients), as they really do make a difference to the finished dish.
