This book is packed with delicious recipes however there is not a picture in sight. I purchased this for approximately £9 to read on my Kindle Fire HD and I am disappointed. Although the recipes read fabulously, I have no idea what the end results should look like. Now, it's ok for those who are familiar with all types of Middle-Eastern cuisine.....but what about those who aren't?

I have rated this book three stars purely for the non existence of accompanying pictures. I feel that in this day and age, customers expect value for money, and no good cook book compromises. I am hoping that this review will be read by the author and publishing house....and it would be great if an update is provided for this book so that no-one else is left disappointed in the future.

I bought this book as a gift for a friend of mine in Northern Ireland, and, while I was there visiting, cooked one recipe out of it.

So, here's what I think..

The author is an acquaintance of mine so I'd be careful that my comment here is not misunderstood. Anissa Helou is a great cook and a brilliant author and I wholly and truly support her. True to form, the book is well researched and certainly shows her love of the region's amazing cuisine and flare.

There are no photos at all in the book, which might put some people off. It wouldn't me - but then again I know what these dishes look like.

However, based on the one recipe I cooked - which was rice pudding, I'd say treat the measures with a bit of discretion. I added a lot more milk than the recipe originally stipulated, or even the suggested top up, but it was still dry. That said, it was still most delish and very aromatic.

Happy cooking!

I love this book. It's not just a book of recipes, there is a lot of explanations of why the recipe is there, when, where etc.

My copy is already got mucky fingerprints over it, I've cooked a few things out of it (Lamb shank and Aubergine is recommended) and it was amazing.

There aren't any pictures to it but it doesn't need them. The book is split into sections and goes beyond starter, main, desert... It has at home, at the restaurant at the bakery etc. So give's a different way on selecting a meal.

Fantastic book.

Excellent culinary book built around childhood memories in the "Levant" (Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Iran, Palestine and Jordan). The dish I would love to try is the Turkish andouillette (Kokoreç). Impossible to find in London or Paris). Crete is reputed to be the closest place to get them. In Greece one can also try Kokoretsi.
