The directions in this cookbook are very detailed, direct and easy to follow. The ease of preparation varies depending on the recipe. Some recipes require ‘thinking in advance,’ with marinating, soaking, and prolonged cooking; while others could be prepared and cooked in under an hour.
This is cookbook shares authentic Middle Eastern cuisine and culture. While some of the ingredients may not be “standard” ingredients on your shopping list, most should be available at large grocery stores. One of the features that I love about this cookbook is that Faith has a whole section dedicated to explaining specific Middle Eastern ingredients; this is very helpful if you will be purchasing these ingredients for the first time. There is also a section with recipes for common Middle Eastern sauces and spice blends.
This cookbook has a variety of classic Middle Eastern recipes, from condiments to breads, to sides and main dishes, to desserts and drinks.
This is a beautiful cookbook that I fell in love with the moment I opened it! It is evident that Faith poured her heart and soul into this book. There is detailed information about Middle Eastern cooking and food. Each recipe contains an explanation of the recipe with most including a personal story or antidote from Faith.
