This richly illustrated volume not only features nearly ninety recipes from many top chefs across the Islamic world, but also customs, traditions, historical background and culinary tales from eight countries: Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Dubai, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.
This diversity displays the richness of Middle Eastern cookery. Insights into everyday eating habits, the uses of spices and herbs, coffee houses, restaurants and bazaars, and the famous hospitality of Arabia make this book a pleasure, both for those who already love the Middle East and for those who are keen to know more.
From the Arabic-European fusion cuisine of Dubai to bread baked in the sand of the Libyan desert, from Lebanon’s top TV chef to the favourite dishes of Moroccan housewives and from exclusive haute-cuisine recipes to hearty country fare, here is the entire, enticing range of Middle Eastern culinary culture.
