Description :

A pleasure to read as well as a delight to cook from ... Ina’am Atalla brings us the exotic flavours and colours of Lebanese cuisine using an abundance of wholesome ingredients combined with fresh herbs and subtle spices to make delicious and healthy dishes.

Having been the chef and co-owner for many years of the successful Al-Bustan restaurant in London, Ina’am Atalla now shares with us the secrets and techniques which have contributed to the success of the restaurant. With her unique writing style and obvious enthusiam, the author inspires the reader to attempt a variety of dishes, from the simplest soup to the more complicated main course. Ina’am Atalla aims to bring the complete Lebanese cuisine experience into the reader’s home. Your level of cookery experience is immaterial: the anecdotal writing style of the author creates the illusion that this is a personal cookery lesson between author and reader as the reader is advised on the essential items that they should have in their store cupboard, and the basic techniques and equipment necessary for achieving authentic results.

The numerous recipes are set out in an easy-to-follow style, supplemented by beautiful colour photography. They are divided into ten sections covering a wide variety of dishes: from soups, hot and cold starters, to raw meat and hot main course dishes, and from accompaniments such as rice and bread, through to desserts and drinks. Traditional recipes such as tabbouleh and kibbeh appear alongside the more unusual and creative variations that have been developed by the author and feature in the vast repertoire of dishes on the menu at her restaurant.

As well as being educational, informative and easy-to-follow, this is very much a book with the personal touch as all the recipes are further supplemented with the author’s personal anecdotes and hints for the cook. With her infectious and amusing text, Ina’am Atalla succeeds in her ‘mission’ to impart her love and enthusiasm of the Lebanese cuisine of which she is justly proud, making this book a pleasure simply to read as well as a delight to cook from
