    There’s not much small talk – no evocative introductions to each recipe...Nevertheless, it’s a really generous compendium that rewards the committed cook.

  • Sauce Magazine

    Hage is a no-nonsense instructor. There are no cutesy anecdotes, no memories of an uncle or grandmother to preface dishes. Only a handful of photos punctuate the book’s 500 recipes.

    Although the uncluttered and easy-to-follow recipes lack headnotes, you don't miss them; cooking from the book is like having a smiling Lebanese granny at your elbow... The food within is amazing...

    It’s also an international book, and the US terminology will drive pedants and patriots up the wall. Nevertheless, it’s a really generous compendium that rewards the committed cook.

    Phaidon has made a specialty of producing doorstep-sized tomes on national cuisines for home cooks...on Italy, Spain, France, Greece and India. This latest addition is undoubtedly one of the best.

  • Portland Book Review

    This cookbook is generally approachable for many chefs, regardless of your experience. However, in several recipes, it was observed that the book omitted quantities of certain ingredients.

    ...covering every aspect of her native cuisine... Hage's directions are concise, with recipes usually appearing two to a page, and accompanied by an array of delicious, full-page, color photos.

    The Lebanese Kitchen is remarkably accessible. Even if you're new to this cuisine, you should find the recipes simple to follow, with helpful notes on preparation and cooking time.

    Hage’s food is solid and satisfying. ...And pretty much all of it can be created without a trip to a Middle Eastern grocery store; most ingredients are American supermarket standards.

  • Sweet potato fish cakes with za'ater crumb

    • Kitchen Chronicles

      These fish cakes are not too fishy and simply delicious, with the addition of Middle Eastern herbs and spices, in particular, the cilantro and za’atar.

    • Kitchen Chronicles

      I think what I like most about this quinoa is that there’s a lot going on...those ingredients are a textural symphony...Every bite is different but delicious.
