The Complete Middle East Cookbook
The Complete Middle East Cookbook | Tess Mallos
3 posts
The cuisine of the Middle East has always had its devotees, and eating at Lebanese, Syrian, Turkish or Greek restaurants has delighted many people in recent years. But relatively few have tackled these dishes in their own kitchens. Now, with The Complete Middle East Cookbook, anyone can produce delectable meals from the exotic worlds of Homer, Omar Khayyam and the Arabian Nights. Author Tess Mallos provides carefully tested recipes set out in easy-to-follow steps, with many of the dishes illustrated in eighty superb color photographs. Including regional dishes from Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Afghanistan, Cyprus and Kuwait, to name a few, this is the definitive book for anyone interested in Middle Eastern cooking. Praise for the hardcover edition: "Astonishing in its scope."-Craig Claiborne, The New York Times "A tasteful tour of the Middle East. Each country is introduced with a short history, and descriptions are given of typical cooking methods and ingredients. The food is beautifully photographed, and recipes are easy to follow.."School Library Journal

Aims42 One of the cookbooks my mom has automatically opens up to my favorite recipes 😋 It‘s a Betty Crocker cookbook she got as a wedding gift 35+ years ago. She cooked it a lot when I lived at home and I request it when I visit her now ❤️ 4w

One of our favorite recipes from one of our oldest cookbooks. I can‘t remember when we got the book, but I know this Greek shrimp with tons of melted feta is one of the first recipes we made out of it. Still one of the best.

Bookzombie That looks delicious! 1mo
Lynnsoprano @Bookzombie Truthfully, as good as it looks, it tastes 10 times better. Just about my favorite dish ever. 1mo

This has been our go-to Middle Eastern cookbook for over 30 years. Hubby made his fabulous Greek chicken based on a recipe from this book tonight. I have voice students on Tuesdays, and so hubby cooks while I teach. I was salivating through my last lesson😊
