Secrets of Healthy Middle Eastern Cuisine
Sanaa Abourezk

7” x 10” • 212 pages • full color photos
ISBN 9781566563277 • paperback • $19.95

The eastern Mediterranean countries of the Levant — Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Syria — share a love of toothsome breads and grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, fish plucked from the sea, and ripe olives from hillside groves. Meat is used sparingly; aromatic olive oil supplants butter. But reducing these cholesterol-laden foods does not leave the Levantine palate lacking for taste — their absence allows the subtle flavors of herbs and spices to shine. This is the secret of the deliciously healthful diet that eastern Mediterranean cooks have long understood, and that the West is just beginning to appreciate.

In Secrets of Healthy Middle Eastern Cuisine
, Sanaa Abourezk recasts traditional savory Levantine recipes with the eye of an accomplished chef and nutritionist. The 150 recipes range from appetizers to desserts and include nutritional breakdowns. The author also explains the Mediterranean food pyramid, advises on spice shopping, and intrigues with evocative tales of Levantine life and lore. The resulting cookbook is a colorful bazaar of mouth-watering, healthful recipes, where both ancient and modern culinary secrets are revealed.

Sanaa Abourezk trained at the Masha Innocenti Cooking School in Florence and the Cordon Bleu Baking School in Paris. She is a food writer, and has also worked as a nutritionist in South Dakota, where she now lives.
