"This innovative cookbook includes successful modern interpretations of traditional dishes, often making them lighter and more accessible without destroying the original. I heartily recommend Artichoke to Za'atar."--Jill Norman, editor of The Cook's Book

"I'm sold on Greg Malouf. . . . I like his swing back and forth between old and new, and his sensitivity with spices is especially brilliant." --Paula Wolfert, author of Couscous and other Good Food from Morocco

This richly illustrated book offers a comprehensive collection of 170 recipes, organized alphabetically according to ingredients widely used in Middle Eastern cooking. Written by award-winning chef Greg Malouf and his writing partner, Lucy Malouf, Artichoke to Za'atar covers everything from the basics—almonds, lemons, and yogurt—to less widely known components such as pomegranates, rose water, and sumac. A brief description and history of each ingredient is provided, along with invaluable tips on how to select, prepare, and cook it. Originally published in 1999 as Arabesque, this book has earned international acclaim as the ultimate guide to modern Middle Eastern cuisine by a chef who is considered a master of the genre. Artichoke to Za'atar is a volume to read, use, and treasure—a must for anyone interested in creative cooking and culinary history. Now available in North America for the first time.
