Additional Details

Description: The Pure Taste of Lebanon From Safa's Kitchen has more than 70 authentic recipes that have been passed down from mother to daughter. The recipes are adapted to employ modern tools to make them easy, simple and quick, and still ensure that the traditional flavor of the Lebanese cuisine is preserved. Nutritional information per serving is included with every recipe. Instructions are given in the clearest and most accessible way for the modern cook. 

The Lebanese diet is based on simple, natural foods- meats, fish, poultry, olive oil, pure butter and ghee (clarified butter), legumes, fresh vegetables and fruits, nuts, yogurt and cheese. Add to this herbs and spices and that is what Lebanese cooking is all about a diet basically unchanged for thousands of years and recognized as an ideal diet for healthful living in the 21st century. The time is right to bring this type of cooking with quick and easy recipes to the American kitchen. 

It is a contagious style of cooking with flavors that are compelling to both Middle-eastern and American palates. 

Only Safa's Kitchen deals with easy and simple gourmet recipes. Its target audience is anyone who enjoys a fresh, natural, healthy meal. An increasing number of books are dealing with the concept of easy recipes; however, there is no other resource that specifically pulls together all aspects of an authentic Lebanese meal, gourmet pastries and luscious desserts with the nutritional information per serving. 

Lebanon has always been a special country with its legendary hospitality, natural and tourist sites and its delicious food.
