The area comprising Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan has provided the world with one of its most distinguished culinary traditions, and, in this landmark volume, Sonia Uvezian gives this time-honored cuisine the kind of presentation it truly deserves. Written by a leading authority on Middle Eastern and Caucasian cuisines, this highly original cookbook offers hundreds of superb recipes, many of them not found elsewhere. Established favorites such as tabbuleh and baklava appear alongside exciting innovations and creative interpretations of classic dishes. The book also contains illuminating essays on a variety of topics, among them hospitality, meals and menus, and utensils. The essay on ingredients includes a definitive and much-need section on pomegranates and pomegranate molasses. What lends this book added distinction is the author's impressive grasp of the historical, cultural, and geographical influences that have shaped the region's cookery. With its personal reminiscences of an eastern Mediterranean childhood, evocative illustrations, and insightful anecdotes and proverbs, this revelatory work is a welcome blend of outstanding scholarship and entertaining reading. A genuine contribution to culinary literature, it will be a treasured addition to the library of anyone interested in Middle Eastern cooking and is destined to become a classic.
