Traditional Lebanese Recipes
By Aida Karaoglan (Paperback, 167 pages, ISBN: 1566561051)
List Price: $16.00, Lowest Amazon.com Price: $11.00, OUR PRICE: $5.95
Lebanon’s cuisine draws from a culinary history truly unlike any other in the world. This healthy and wholesome diet is a reflection of Lebanon’s unique interaction with Babylonians, Phoenicians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Persians, Byzantines, Turks, and more recently, Europeans.
This tantalizing collection of more than 200 vegetarian recipes — passed down from mother to daughter, generation after generation — has been carefully collected from the rural villages of Lebanon, patiently tested and adapted to Western kitchens.
Accompanied by more than 30 full-color photographs, these tempting and delicious dishes are straightforward and easy to prepare. Also includes detailed descriptions of Lebanese cooking’s food groups and ingredients.
Jonathan’s favorite recipe is for burghul, a wholesome and delicious wheat base (click to enlarge):
“Aida Karaoglan has put together a fabulous collection of delectable vegetarian dishes,” writes noted cookbook author Paula Wolfert. “You can almost smell the fragrant spices while leafing through the pages. I will cherish this book.”
Sam and Sam Clark, owners of the award-winning Moorish restaurant “Moro” in London, have ranked this book among their Top 10 Cookbooks. “Vegetable cooking of the Islamic regions of Mediterranean is some of the most enlightened in the world – and this book helped open our eyes.”
