Authentic Egyptian Cooking: From the Table of Abou El Sid


Authentic Egyptian Cooking: From the Table of Abou El Sid Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Traditionally, Egyptian cooking has been best practiced and enjoyed at home, where generations of unrecorded family recipes have been the sustaining repertoire for daily meals as well as sumptuous holiday feasts. Abou El Sid, one of Cairo's most famous restaurants, has become well known for its authentic Egyptian dishes, and now presents more than four dozen of its most classic recipes in a cookbook for the enjoyment of home cooks all over the world.

Egyptians will recognize their favorites, from holiday dishes such as Fettah to the arrays of appetizers like aubergine with garlic, special lentils, and tahina; those new to Middle Eastern food will find the recipes simple and simply delicious, and enjoy the Egyptian table even if they don't have the heritage of the pharaohs in their family backgrounds.

- 56 authentic Egyptian recipes from starters to main courses to desserts.

- Each recipe illustrated with gorgeous, full color photographs.

- Full spread for each recipe so you don't have to flip the page.

- Beautifully designed and visually sumptuous boutique book.
