Overview

Ina’am Atalla introduces us to the exotic flavors and colors of Lebanese cuisine using an abundance of wholesome ingredients, combined with fresh herbs and subtle spices to make delicious and healthy dishes. This book is the product of her wealth of experience and her desire to dispel the complexities and mysteries surrounding Middle Eastern cookery by using simple techniques and easily available ingredients. With her obvious enthusiasm, the author inspires the reader to attempt a variety of easy-to-follow recipes, from the simplest soup to the more complicated main course, and from traditional recipes such as tabbouleh and kibbeh to the more unusual and creative variations that have been developed by her for the menu at her restaurant. The reader’s level of expertise is immaterial: supplemented by beautiful color photography, Ina’am’s anecdotes and tips for the cook create the illusion that this is a personal cookery lesson between author and reader, while the book as a whole remains simply a pleasure to read.
