This is another one of those cookbooks that I love to pull out and read. I learned just as much about Turkey from this book as I did from a guidebook. It is well-researched and interesting to read.
The recipes are tasty and easy to follow. One of my favorite lunches from it is the Lamb Kebab with Caick.
Having traveled through Morocco, I was looking for a cookbook to replicate the fabulous flavors of our journey at home. This book did that and more. Each and every recipe transported me back to the hot sultry streets of Marrekesh.
The recipes are well-tested and easy to follow. Claudia writes a lot of history and geography into her books that make them a joy to read as well as cook from.
I prepared numerous dishes from the Lebanon chapter for a Lebanese family who were astounded at how close to home the dishes tasted.
The flavors of the recipes are spot-on and packed...

I am a Joyce Goldstein fan, so it is no surprise that I loved this cookbook. I started on page one and worked my way through each and every recipe. There is not one that I did not like, although some are very similar to others in the book.
They are well-tested and work perfectly. All the flavors are bright and fresh.
This book is easy to follow, step-by-step, or experiment with.
