The Saveur Bookshelf: The Middle East, Revisited

Four fresh takes on an ancient cuisine

Soulful and refined, the cuisine of the modern Middle East is captured in these four volumes, which present dishes both traditional and those adapted for a global palate. Lebanese, Moroccan, and Palestinian-inspired recipes are interspersed with stories and down-to-earth guidance; hearty tagines, cheese-stuffed sesame bread, chocolate cardamom cookies and more bring the rich history and culture of this part of the world to life.
