This is a no nonsense book. Practical easy recipes that real people eat and make on a daily basis. It's not fancy or particularly well illustrated but the author tells you about the history of certain ingredients or foods and their cultural significance. I have bought this book over and over again as a present for various people
Among quite a lot of food and recipe books in my shelves, this one stands out as being one of the very best. Practical and enjoyable to use, it covers a splendid range of Middle Eastern dishes. Crisp, clear texts help you to bring to the table perfectly cooked items, from a whole lamb downwards. Here is Arabian home cooking at its best. Yumsville.
