Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-A tasteful tour of the Middle East. Each country is introduced with a short history, and descriptions are given of typical cooking methods and ingredients. The food is beautifully photographed, and recipes are easy to follow. However, many include items found only in ethnic food markets and require some degree of expertise to prepare.

This handsome, thorough, and practical guide featuring many full-color photos offers a panoramic view of the region's food traditions. The recipes are easy to follow and range from earthy to exotic. The author's clear, detailed instructions and her sense of humor are most welcome. I have owned this cookbook for some time and refer to it often. I have also given several copies as gifts to friends who like to cook, and they have been truly pleased.
