The Taste of Egypt : Home Cooking from the Middle East, Hardback Book

The Taste of Egypt : Home Cooking from the Middle East Hardback


Combining mouthwatering recipes with a fresh, contemporary design, The Taste of Egypt brings the sophisticated colors and flavors of Egyptian and Middle Eastern cuisine to the modern home kitchen in unpretentious, down-to-earth style.

Impress your dinner guests with sublime appetizers such as stuffed-vine leaves and roast eggplant dip.

Cook up a storm with silky cumin-infused lentil soup, sensational spiced meatballs, and delicious artichokes cooked in red pepper sauce.

There are summery salads to fill a picnic hamper and hearty slow-cooked beans and basterma (fenugreek-spiced cured beef) to evoke the bustling warmth of a Middle Eastern food market. And the recipes for sweet delights are designed to satisfy even the most persistent sweet tooth.

Presented in a vibrant, accessible style and beautifully illustrated with full-color photography, The Taste of Egypt is a celebration of a great culinary tradition and an exciting addition to the repertoire of the modern home cook.
