Publishers Text

This remarkable and beautifully illustrated book describes over 75 ingredients used in Middle Eastern cooking. The cuisines covered include those of Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and the Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Egypt, Yemen, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman; Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Influenced by the Persian, Islamic, and Ottoman Empires, these country's common culinary tradition also reveals the legacy of the Byzantine and Roman empires. The insightful texts take readers and cooks into the history and diversity of these ancient cultures, while 150 recipes allow them to put their knowledge of these ingredients to practical use. Each ingredient is broken down in sections on descriptions and tastes of the spices, historical background, and cultivation or manufacture methods. Each is illustrated with specially commissioned photographs.
