Review
Travel on a gastronomic journey through the Middle East and learn about the wonders of Arabian cuisine in this great little cookbook by Mike Harrison.

     Mike Harrison is an English Language teacher who has been living in the Middle East for years. He has traveled all over sampling the cuisines, and even consulting local chefs and restaurants for tips on how to recreate the delicious meals he had sampled on his adventures. This is his first book.

     There are wonderful color photos showing the delicious recipes, and the scenic vies of the Middle East. Both were wonderfully photographed, especially at a time when some citizens are intimidated by this area with the current political situation.

     The recipes are easy-to-read and easy-to-prepare. I would say that a novice cook is capapble of preparing these meals. Mike Harrison even helps explain certain spices and techniques utilized with the cuisines of this area.

     There are over 50 recipes in this book. The c hapters in this cookbook are: soups, salads, appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Some of the delicious recipes you can find in this book are: Arabian Lentil Soup; Moroccan Carrot, Date and Orange Salad; Iranian Eggplant Puree; Beef Tenderloin with Tamarind Sauce and Spice Island Spice Cake.

     Take a break and a trip around the globe with this wonderful cookbook!
