Product Description

From Booklist

Other areas of the Middle East have their own distinctive cooking traditions. Lebanese Cuisine offers light foods with strong flavors of cinnamon, allspice, and lemons. The late Farah compiled her list of the best Lebanese recipes and made them easy to reproduce in American kitchens. Tabbuli, here called Arabic salad supreme, with its liberal amounts of fresh parsley and mint, appeals to many tastes. Dishes with names on the order of epiphany sweet and Arabic sausage made from pork recall Lebanon's sizeable Arab Christian community. But pork and beef are still exceptions, lamb predominating in Lebanese dishes from crunchy Kibbi in all its variations to Kafta, broiled ground meat. A lack of pictures may deter those not conversant with Lebanese cooking from trying some recipes since it's not always clear what the finished dish ought to look like. Mark Knoblauch

Format: Paperback
Originally recommended to me by my (ex-)brother-in-law, who was Lebanese, this book is the best cookbook for Lebanese cuisine. I have given copies of this book to many friends, and now that a new edition is available, I'll buy more copies for myself and others.
The recipes for Baked Kibbi (Kibbi bis-Sayniyyi) and Baqlawa are among my favorites (I prefer the rose water approach to Baqlawa to the cinnamon most commonly found in such recipes).
The author also presents the recipes with their Arabic names, as well as pronunciation rules, for more authenticity.

I used this book years ago and copied out the recipes then I lost them. I am so happy. I finally found this again. Absolutely the best results from the recipes and I'm not a really good cook. I am very familiar with the traditional Lebanese cooking, having worked in a Lebanese restaurant for years. This is the best I've used and I've tried many Middle Eastern cookbooks.

Sure, you can buy this if you want a list of popular Lebanese dishes with simple recipes. But the recipes lack the depth and details to be helpful. If I can describe the author in one word, it would be "lazy". Simple techniques and tweaks can make a huge difference in recipes, and they don't exist in this book.

For an alternative, I recommend "Classic Lebanese Cuisine". The author has some recipe videos on YouTube, so you can see for yourself before you buy.

Farah spent hours in the kitchen watching her mother cook; she's recreated her mother's recipes in Lebanese Cuisine, which was originally self-published and but now appears in an updated edition for new generations. More than 200 recipes, sans photos, for dishes from Zucchini Stew to Meat Rolls Supreme.
