Middle Eastern Cookery

ISBN: 9781904010814

Author: Arto Der Haroutunian    Publisher: Grub Street

Arto der Haroutunian's twelve cookbooks written in the 1980s became classics; it was his belief that the rich culinary tradition of the Middle East is the main source of many of our Western cuisines and his books were intended as an introduction to that tradition.
His Middle Eastern Cookery is regarded as the seminal work on the subject and at last here is a new redesigned edition of the Middle Eastern cookbook everybody wants.
It is a book containing every possible recipe from the Middle East - there are dishes from the plains of Georgia, from Afganistan, Egypt, Syria, Lebano, Israel, Persia and Armenia. It is written in the same wonderful style as his other classic cookbooks; peppered with anecdotes on life, food and culture. He guides us first around the mezze table and then leads us on to recipes for soups, salads, savouries, pilaffs, kebabs, casseroles and grills that make the best use of meat, fish and poultry. He teaches the cook about different spices that are favoured by different countries - mint for Armenia, cumin for Iran and with each recipe comes a piece of history or a fable which makes this a book to read as well as an unequalled collection of recipes.
