Format: Paperback
Arabian food seems to be shrouded often in a haze of mystery unless you happen to hail from that region. Ask most people to name some Arabian food and they will invariably struggle past throwing out "dates" as a suggestion.

This book will change that and it may make you realise how widespread Arabian food and ingredients are, whether through fusion or just through culinary export.

Straight away the reader begins to be enchanted and hypnotised by the book's great design and photography and this feels a good, important thing for the relative Arabian food virgin. The reader is put at ease and made ready to learn a lot about traditional Arabian food and, of course, its modern-day equivalents by the author who expertly combines her own memories of Arabian food with later times.

Looking through the recipes, split into chapters for breakfast, mezzo, lunch, dinner and dessert, you get a brilliant range of dishes to try that would not look out of place in a high-class restaurant. They are suitable for home production too. Even though some of the dishes might look familiar and possibly not Arabian in nature, you might be surprised when you read a little closer and realise just how widespread food fusion has become over recent years. Kofta Burgers and Yoghurt, Cheese and Mint Sauce... yum! ... and that is just one example.

No doubt the ultra-orthodox purist will find something to complain about, even when classics such as hummus, tabbouleh, shawarna and labneh are also present. The average reader, who is open to a bit of something possibly new, will not be disappointed. Despite the book featuring a good introduction and little information blocks appearing throughout, it would have been nice to have been able to read a little more about Arabian food and its culture.

Modern Middle Eastern cuisine seems to be on a roll at the moment. After Malouf the other day, we have now received Modern Flavours of Arabia, written by Suzanne Husseini, a food writer and television presenter based in Dubai.

It's arranged into five main chapters - breakfast, mezze, lunch, dinner and dessert. Recipes are a mixture of Middle Eastern classics (labneh, fried halloumi, baba ghanouj, hummus, kofta, tabbouleh, falafel, shawama, shish kebab and shish tawouk) , together with some more modern recipes that use the classic flavours as inspiration.

Of the more modern recipes, I was particularly taken by the idea of roasted cauliflower with citrus and tahini sauce, herb and nut crusted labneh balls, spicy chicken wings with fresh hot tomato salsa, lemony garlic chicken with rice and yoghurt sauce, cauliflower fritters with yoghurt and mint dip, pistachio ice cream, baklava, sesame and pistachio nut biscuits and spiced ricotta filled dates.

This book looks ideal for those wishing to try some Middle Eastern cooking, and want something that's not as haute cuisine as Malouf, which we reviewed the other day. Recipes are aimed at home cooking for families - they're not restaurant recipes needing fifteen different things all to happen at the same time, thirty seconds before serving. If you're looking to give this cuisine a whirl, they have a look at this book.
