Traditional Hummus Recipes Anyone?
From the Lands of Figs and Olives: Over 300 Delicious & Unusual Recipes from the Middle East
Traditional hummus recipes, fried cucumbers, fez carrots, potato croquettes! These are just some of the delicious Middle Eastern foods you’ll discover in this wonderful book. Authored by Habeeb Salloum and James Peters, this book is a virtual journey through the many variations of Middle Eastern cuisine, from the more well-known foods, such as hummus and potato salad, to some less familiar recipes, including powdered cheese, or Kishk, and delicious yogurt cheese balls, otherwise known as Zanakeel Laban.
This book should be a hit with anyone who enjoys the tastes and flavours of the Middle East, and Salloum and Peters are careful to have written each recipe with the western kitchen in mind. So although each recipe is genuinely authentic, there’s no need to redesign your existing kitchen based on Middle Eastern standards! Aside from the many recipes (300), the book also contains educational background information, such as the history of each dish, and the authors even offer appropriate substitutions for some of the more difficult to acquire ingredients.
All in all, this book is a must read for anyone interested in Middle Eastern cuisine, whether you’re a complete newcomer to the area, or you’re an old hat who just wants to brush up on their traditional hummus recipe!
