I have the hardcover from the library and plan to purchasing the paperback. The author has a vast knowledge of the region and provides not only recipes but quotations and bits of knowledge and culture. He was originally from Syria but moved to London as a child, where he owned six restaurants. Some of his recipes are family ones while others are from specific countries or even select towns and villages. The recipes range from easy to more involved. He was an internationally known painter, composer, and translator of Turkish, Arabic, Persian, and Armenian works. I'm looking forward to trying some of the recipes with my Iranian-American neighbor.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
