At the heart of Middle Eastern culture is a glorious cuisine coupled with a strong tradition of hospitality. Eating is a communal experience, and the table is covered with generous amounts of food for all to share. A typical meal starts with mezze plates of dips, olives, cheeses and breads. Grilled lamb and chicken are popular mains, as well as vegetables, rice dishes, fruit, nuts and more bread. This book captures the essence of Middle Eastern hospitality in every recipe.
