The Culinary Crescent : A History of Middle Eastern Cuisine, Hardback Book

The Culinary Crescent : A History of Middle Eastern Cuisine Hardback


This cultural history of Middle Eastern cuisine combines scholarship with passion: Professor Peter Heine's knowledge of the culinary traditions of the Omayyad, Abbasid, Ottoman, Safavid, as well as Moghul courts, is matched by his love for the tastes and smells produced by the contemporary cooking. And in order to share his enthusiasm with his readers he has added over one hundred recipes: some from modern times, others handed down by the celebrity chefs of the Moghul Empire, and even some with promises to taste of paradise.

These elegant cloth-bound volume, printed in colour, provides a window in the history of food in the Middle East.
