I thought this was really good...
on 27 September 2013
I haven't had it that long so I have not tried out all the recipes I want as yet. So far I have really enjoyed the shakshoukah, the mixed greens frittata, the carrot salad, the pepper and walnut dip, fattoush salad, beetroot, radish and grapefruit salad. Also the chamomile chicken, sumac chicken casserole, quinces stuffed with veal and berries. All the recipes were clear and well explained and easy to follow.
There is a whole vegetarian section I haven't even looked at properly - and my wife tells me the desserts look wonderful (I don't eat them so very rarely cook them - only when she bribes me)
A useful section of basic recipes and methods concludes the book - very helpful. As is the two page guide to stocking the store cupboard.
It is a nice piece of book production, well laid out and good to handle. Also the photographs have been kept under control - they do not crowd out the recipes as in some recent cookbooks.
Have a look at it in a bookshop and see if you don't find several recipes you want to make as soon as you can
