This is a fantastic read as well as a cookery book. In it you discover the history of the places and people as well as wonderful descriptions of delicious food. I have been inspired to cook dinner parties and buffets from it as well as added to my repertoire of everyday foods. Some of the best recipes include m'choui (slow cooked lamb) and a carrot salad to die for.Read moreLess

A brilliant book if you like Middle Eastern food (or just want a change) - or are interested in the history and culture(s). Delicious food, mostly easy to cook, as well as more challenging dishes and fascinating background. I particularly like Mutabbal (an Aubergine dip).
Some excellent vegetarian recipes as well.Read moreLess
