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.
