Beautifully produced and fascinating to read,
This review is from: Veggiestan: A Vegetable Lover's Tour of the Middle East (A Middle Eastern Cookbook) (Hardcover)
This book is both well-written and lovely to look at. As well as the practical recipes, it's packed with interesting snippets of background information, history, literature, folk tales and cultural info of all kinds, which makes it wonderful to browse through. The best cookery book I've read for an awfully long time, thoroughly enjoyable and insightful.
