The cuisine of Lebanon epitomizes the best of the Mediterranean diet, which is highly regarded for its positive health benefits. Abounding in vegetables, grains, fresh herbs and spices, poultry, and lamb, it yields meals replete with robust, earthy flavors.

Featuring favorites such as baba ghannouj, tabbouli, and kibbi, this book also presents Al-Faqih's signature classics, like London broil layered with pita and garlic yogurt, and heart-healthy fire-roasted wheat with lamb.

With step-by-step instructions accompanied by full-color photographs throughout, this book makes Lebanese cuisine accessible to everyone who seeks to reproduce their favorite flavors and dishes―from the merely curious to more experienced cooks.

I was motivated to buy this book after our recent to Southern Spain, where there is an abundance of Middle Eastern cuisine. I looked at the reviews of the different books here on Amazon and settled with this one.

The book is hardcover, 238 pages. There is a brief Foreword and Introduction, but the main focus is on the recipes. There are 5 chapters of recipes, as well as the sections, "Suggested Menus," and "The Pantry," which highlights common ingredients in Lebanese cooking in both their common name (e.g. Olive Oil) and its Middle Eastern translation (zeyt zeytoon). Each chapter lists all of the recipes by name right at the beginning.

Sample recipes include:

* Hummus with minced lamb and pine nuts
* Smoked eggplant dip
* Lamb stuffed grape leaves
* Eggplant salad
* Lemon-garlic potato salad
* Cardomom chicken with rice
* Raisin couscous with vegetable stew
* Roast leg of lamb
* Basmati rice with toasted noodles
* Lebanese pancakes with cream

With few exceptions, there is a photo of each dish, as well as photos of preparation techniques for some of the more complicated recipes. In most instances, the author points out which steps can be prepared in advance, as well as modifications that can be made in case you don't have certain ingredients or cooking materials. While some here have criticized the quality of the photos, I think they're fine.

In addition to the recipes, the author includes tid bits, such as how to select good eggplant or other vegetables, how to grind Turkish coffee, and how to make variations of some of the recipes.

I've tried three recipes thus far. They are easy to follow and the dishes turned out well.

Overall, this is is a very good cookbook. There are a range of options included, from appetizers to desserts. I highly recommend it.

Before visiting friends in Lebanon in 2015, I purchased this cookbook to familiarize myself with the cuisine and try a few dishes beforehand. I instantly fell in love with the cookbook for its expertly written recipes, clear instructions, and beautiful photographs. The recipes I made were 100% successful. While visiting Lebanon (definitely one of my favorite trips ever), I recognized many of the dishes and could tell that Chef Kamal's recipes were both authentic and well-adapted to the American kitchen. I'm looking forward to trying many more dishes!

Excellent source for recipes with a new and clever spin in their classification. While very specific regarding ingredients and workable alternatives, it's very sparse when it comes to the actual cooking, limiting itself to times and temperatures and not other references, i.e "until golden brown", "until rises", or "until boiling".
It may seem like something elemental and not the problem with an experienced cook, but when cooking food from a foreign culture, it's like starting from zero all over again.

Really nice collection of recipes...each section has something good...most are easy and well explained. Really like some of the deserts. Most are simple but delicious. This book was a pleasant surprise.

I am Lebanese and wanted to get a book for someone as a gift. This is great. It reminded me of some recipes that I forgot about, actually. But it is pretty accurate and easy to follow.

Sometimes, you can judge a book by it's cover. This one is as beautiful inside as it is on the outside. Kamal introduces Lebanese cuisine with beautiful photographs and easy to read recipes. Included are many tips that go beyond the basic recipe to ensure successful results in your kitchen. Mouth watering recipe after recipe await my "have to try this" bucket list. A well written cookbook. I'm glad I purchased it!

I just got my book! After searching for a well thought out and presented video on baked kibbeh on YouTube. I found Chef Kamal. I was so happy!
His recipes are great! And he explains everything very clearly and concisely. The cookbook is GREAT! I couldn’t be happier with my selection.
Came on time, recipes are exactly what I hoped for. My husband can't wait to see how some of these stack up to his great-uncle's cooking!!!
