Taste of Beirut is an interesting cookbook. In this part of the world food is a time to relax and enjoy. When preparing these foods the author requests that the cook should use fresh ingredients and those that are in season.
I love looking at recipes from different parts of the world, but I never really considered foods from Beirut. So when this cookbook came up I was excited to look through and see what I can try. The recipes throughout do not use ingredients that cannot be found in most areas and are so well-written that they can be prepared for any supper.
There are hints throughout and the pictures give a good representation of what the foods should look like. Some of the recipes included are turnip pickles, Fava bean soup, lentil soup with swiss chard, red pepper hummus and so many more.
I was given this book by NetGalley and HCI books in exchange for my honest review.
