New Feast: Modern Middle Eastern Vegetarian
Stunningly photographed, New Feast offers modern interpretations of Middle Eastern food with more than 130 recipes inspired by the spirit of generosity that characterises the region.
The Middle East – from North Africa and Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan to Iran and the Arabian Peninsula – has long had a vibrant tradition of home-style vegetarian cuisine, from their abundant salads, dips and breads to delicious and hearty main meals. Based on the freshest ingredients and cooked from the heart, Greg and Lucy Malouf’s recipes are designed to be mixed and matched for sharing.
While vegetables are the stars, the recipes have variety with a selection of grains, legumes, couscous and rice, plus breads, butters, dips and preserves, and even an enticing assortment of fruit-focused ice creams, puddings, pastries and cakes. Think Winter tabbouleh; Eggplant pilaf with yoghurt & zhoug; Charred corncobs with almond-saffron butter; Spicy red hummus and Orange baklava cigars.
