The best cook book on the planet
on 27 July 2013
My original copy of this great book was a present from a girlfriend in 1982 - it's been used ever since but sadly has started to become unhinged. The cost of the book back in the day was £1.95 the cover price is now £25 - but bought from Amazon for £16 a bargain even allowing for price inflation. Nearly all of the original recipes are contained plus a feast of additional ones to caress the taste buds. The chapters are headed up with graytone water colours of various Middle Eastern sights and still sprinkled with endearing stories of a life that once was. You are not cooking unless you have this book - get surprised and enchanted.
