Lots of recipes to suit all occasions and tastes. Some exotic ingredients but great seasonal, colour and taste variations, along with good photography showing the food as finished without excessive embellishment. A good mix of simple to complex and a great approach overall to this cuisine.
A beautifully presented recipe books. The photos are stunning and the recipes look delicious. Love how Sabrina makes her recipes simple, and the end result is amazing food. I'm looking forward to trying out the many lovely recipes in this book.
Another absolutely brilliant book from Sabrina. I've only cooked 2 recipes from the book so far (had it 3 days!!) - both mid-week suppers when I wanted something quick, tasty and healthy. The chicken shawarma and the spicy harissa chickpea pittas with cheddar both delivered in spades. Utterly delicious. Quick. Perfect! Recipes from Persiana and Sirocco have become staples in my repertoire- I know lots of recipes from Feasts will too. (And as an added tip-I'm not afraid to mix with the spices/herbs a bit. If a recipe calls for fresh coriander which I can't abide, I use parsley. If I run out of, say, cumin seeds, I'll use some ground. It might not be exactly the same...but it's a lot better than missing out!)
This is a genuinely useful cookbook, good clear recipes using lots of spices to create a twist on familiar dishes like roast chicken and lamb. Lots of delicious ways with veg. Desserts are excellent. Every recipe I tried (perhaps 15, so far) worked well. My only gripe, and I have with this and with almost every book I buy now, is that I wish recipes could go back to an easy-to-use layout of first courses, or lunches, followed by mains, followed by sweets, etc. The current trend of menu-plan layouts makes for a prettier book but an irritated cook.
I love this book as it has recipes that don't take need a huge list of ingredients but are a bit different. I tried the roast cauliflower straight away and it was delicious. In a week I had tried 5 recipes and loved them all. One or 2 ingredients seem a bit obscure i.e.pul biker chilli flakes ( I just used what I had ). But most ingredients are easily available .
Easy to follow, fantastic tasty recipes. Have already made 6-7 dishes and will be making more. You can pick up a lot of the ingredients at Amazon or your local supermarket which is useful but some of the more unusual products such as barrata need a little more searching. Sabrina's books are consistently five star and she's equally a five star person ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Middle Eastern cookery is new to me. So these recipes are quite interesting as an introduction. Altho not a vegetarian cookbook, there are many non-meat recipes, using vegetables and grains, that make a novel change. If I had to pay full bookshop price, I'd not have bothered. But the Amazon price is a sufficient bargain to encourage me to give Sabrina Ghayour a whirl. The book itself is nicely produced, attractive to look at and a pleasure to browse, in my view.
