Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spinach, pecorino, and potato pie

    • meggan on March 31, 2020

      I haven't worked with phyllo much so I found the directions a little confusing. The filling was good although I had to sub frozen chard and peas for spinach but there seemed to be too many papery flakes in the wrapper.

  • Artichoke soup with chorizo and roasted pistachio nuts

    • meggan on April 14, 2017

      Wow - I really liked this soup - interesting flavors. I didn't have dried chorizo so I just cooked the chorizo in with the other veg. I also used some quality canned artichokes hearts to speed things along. I also did a rough chop with an immersion blender. The allspice and pistachios bring it to the next level.

A brief description and history of each ingredient is provided, along with invaluable tips on how to select, prepare, and cook it. Originally published in 1999 as Arabesque, this book has earned international acclaim as the ultimate guide to modern Middle Eastern cuisine by a chef who is considered a master of the genre.
