This is a book of Middle Eastern recipes, often with new twists on them. I requested this book because it was put out by a bakery, and I like baking much better than I like other forms of cooking. In this regard, it did not disappoint. There are all sorts of recipes involving baking in this book, as well as many other cafe-style recipes. Many of the recipes are accompanied by lovely photographs of the dishes.
The difficult part in recreating these recipes comes from the ingredients lists. Many of the recipes call for specialized ingredients. While I expect this out of an ethnic cookbook, it does make it hard to try many of the recipes.
That said, this is a lovely cookbook and I really like the theme. It’s a baking cookbook with a lot more added to it. It’s a Middle Eastern cookbook that has a lot of innovative ideas. There are all sorts of recipes to try, depending on your mood (and, of course, what you ingredients you have on hand).
I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
