Designed for flavour, versatility and convenience, virtually every recipe can be adapted to suit your palate, your dietary preferences or your on-hand ingredients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recipes that work! Feb. 28 2011
I bought this book a few days ago, and took a risk by hosting a dinner party the same night using three recipes from the book -- a main and two starters. Obviously, I'd never made any of the dishes before, but they all turned out perfectly. The recipes are well written and easy to follow, and the techniques are straightforward. A few recipes features some unusual ingredients (sumac, for example), which you may not have on hand, so be sure to check first. Most dishes are only mildly spiced, so they're perfect for entertaining.

The book is also nice to look at, with crisp photos and a pleasing layout.

Five enthusiastic stars.

All of the recipes are displayed as a low resolution images instead of text. The most important part of the book is next to unreadable.

Hopefully it is updated to present like something worth paying for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but exotic Sept. 3 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I already owned Vij's first book and have used it, but some of the recipes seem a bit daunting. I bought this one on my daughter's recommendation and I'm thrilled with how simple and delicious the recipes are that I have tried so far.
