Madelain Farah, who learnt traditional Lebanese cooking from her mother, recreates more than 200 authentic Lebanese recipes and makes them easy to cook in Western kitchens. The book includes a range of classic Middle Eastern recipes such as hummus, falafel, cucumber yogurt salad, baked fish with tahini sauce and roasted eggplant dip. She also presents the recipes with their Arabic names for more authenticity.
Simple, clear instructions. Authentic and close to my own grandmother's recipes. No photos, but oddly that makes it easier for me to focus on the recipes. Includes several hard to find recipes for lamb delicacies that were delicious. A must have for this Lebanese girl's cookbook shelf.
