Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Khalife, founder and owner of the first food channel in the Arab world, Soufra Daimeh Food Network, and author of more than 70 cookbooks, puts her considerable experience to work in this winning collection of over 90 recipes for Mediterranean-style starters. With most dishes calling for just a handful of ingredients, even inexperienced cooks will be able to prepare appetizers such as the Lebanese Potatoes in Oil and Lemon Dressing, Beirut-Style Chickpea Dip, Walnut Dip and basic salads in a matter of minutes. More confident cooks will want to try their hand at one of the many croquette recipes scattered throughout the book, with fillings such as split peas, zucchini, and beef and nuts as well as heartier fare such as her many stuffed pastries. Mussels stuffed with an exotic mix of rice, currants, pine nuts and a bevy of spices is sure to satisfy, as are more familiar dishes such as Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and marinated lamb shish kebabs. There are enough simple, flavor-packed dishes for just about any appetite or gathering, giving cooks plenty of tasty ways to expand their palates without breaking the bank or spending an entire day in the kitchen.

Library Journal

Khalifé is a cooking teacher, author of The Middle Eastern Cookbook, and producer of a Middle Eastern food network. Here, she presents recipes for mezze, or little dishes, from Greece, Turkey, and her native Lebanon. They are grouped into chapters of hot and cold mezze, salads, and pastries, and many are shown in full-page color photographs. Unfortunately, Khalifé provides only a brief introduction to the topic, and her recipes, many of which will be unfamiliar to readers, do not include headnotes. Diane Kochilas's Meze is a better book on the same topic, and Paul Gayler's recent The World in Bite Size is a wider-ranging compendium of mezze and other small plates. For larger collections.
