An accomplished food and travel writer, Habeeb Salloum is the author of Classic Vegetarian Cooking from the Middle East and North Africa, also published by Interlink. James Peters is a writer, editor, and critic specializing in Arabic literature and language.From Booklist:
For those cooks who already possess a solid knowledge of Middle Eastern and North African cooking, Salloum and Peters go one step further. They feature some rather esoteric dishes of cultural interest. Even if these offerings are not the most appealing selections for a menu plan, they provide a more complete view of the overall fare. And although all the popular, traditional dishes, such as hummus, are included, a variety of recipes allows for comparisons. Syrian and Lebanese versions might be featured alongside Palestinian and Jordanian recipes for a similar dish, illustrating different seasonings or ingredients peculiar to the region mentioned in the respective recipes. With fare from Algeria to Yemen, Salloum and Peters offer plenty of possibilities for engaging culinary adventures. Alice Joyce
