    A landmark classic

    I am familiar with many books on eastern Mediterranean/Middle Eastern cooking, but I have seen nothing like this revelatory and loving volume in which the author brings to life a cuisine and a culture in a way only one who was born and reared in the region could. 'Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen' recreates a time and place inaccessible not only to most Americans, but even to most eastern Mediterraneans. It evokes the world of Uvezian's Lebanese childhood and is a rich portrayal of how people lived once upon a time, a happy time, not so long ago. A masterpiece of culinary instruction as valuable for its authentic and inspired recipes as for its exceptionally informative text, this groundbreaking work is an essential guide for anyone who enjoys cooking and reading about eastern Mediterranean food. Uvezian's engaging narrative is threaded throughout with handsome period illustrations of ingredients, markets, traditional utensils, scenes of daily life, views of mountain villages and the sea, ancient temples, mosques, and monasteries. I found the content of these illustrations at least as impressive as their inherent beauty. Anyone can make the dishes described by following the author's clearly written recipes, which are based on readily available ingredients. Some of the best cooking I have ever done has resulted from this truly wonderful book.

    You'll be amazed!

    I can't believe I found the perfect cookbook. I'm someone who used to be totally hopeless in the kitchen -- i used to live on pasta with tomotoe sauce, (can) tuna and mashed rice because that's all i knew. The author's methods are detailed and easy to follow. I have already cooked four dishes and each one tasted delicious. My family and friends were amazed. Thanks to this book I can now cook a decent meal. I also enjoyed reading the history, hospitality, food of the Middle-east. This book is worth every penny and you cherish it forever.
