Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nile Style is the first cookbook devoted to the comprehensive, multiethnic and multi-religious history of the Egyptian table. Arranged in a unique menu format, each menu highlights a celebratory feast or meal, such as the Ancient Nile Festival, Ramadan Breakfast, or Passover, and includes a historical and anecdotal introduction along with the recipes. Nile Style explores the predominant Islamic, Jewish, and Christian culinary traditions but also features recipes from the lesser-known Bedouin and Nubian communities in Egypt.

From classics like Fava Bean Puree, Yogurt with Honey, and Egyptian Whole-Wheat Pita Bread, to tempting Lamb-Filled Phyllo Triangles and Peanut, Coconut, and Raisin Baklava, Nile Style spans the range of the Egyptian kitchen with recipes that will appeal to every palate

Includes:

-23 full menus showcasing 150 easy-to-follow recipes

-16-page color photo insert
