Additional Details

Description: Lebanese cookery is based on a style of hospitality that requires ample, good, natural food to be offered to visitors, even unexpected ones, by every household. This, the very first authentic and comprehensive book of Lebanese cookery ever published outside Lebanon, has proved a bestseller. Now new photographs enhance the 150 recipes that include all the national dishes, plus those for dips, patties, sweet and savoury pastries, and a wealth of delicious dishes not so widely known. 

These recipes will delight the gourmet, because the Lebanese people love good food. They will also satisfy the health enthusiast, because much use is made of grain, cheese, yoghurt, and fresh and dried fruits and vegetables. The vegetarian too will find many tasty dishes in this book meat-free (vegetarian) recipes are marked with a V for easy identification, and those that are both meat-free and dairy-free (Lenten) are also marked with an L. 

This book provides the perfect opportunity to offer authentic hospitality, Lebanese-style, and to truly enjoy this gracious and healthy cuisine. 

In the Lebanese tradition of cooking, which depends on home kitchens run by women, the recipes in this book have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations.
