About this book

An excellent collection of recipes presented with infectious humor and charm.

Hot on the heels of The New Middle Eastern Vegetarian, Sally Butcher brings us The New Middle Eastern Street Food Cookbook: a fabulous collection of quick, healthy, and easy-to-prepare recipes from Snackistan, a fictitious land where tummies are always full, and there's a slightly naughty smile on every face. It features simple fare that people actually eat on a daily basis: street food, or dishes they prepare at home, or cook to share with friends, or look forward to indulging in at the end of the week. Street food has come of age and, increasingly, formal dining is being nudged aside in favor of meze-style spreads. In malls and farmers markets across the world, food on the hoof has become a stylish and popular way to feed.

This book picks out the Middle East's most exciting street foods and meze dishes, together with a variety of homely and simple snack recipes elicited from family and friends. Chapters comprise Nuts and Nibbles, Fishy Things, Meat on Sticks, Meat Not on Sticks, Salady Stuff, Hot Veggie Dishes, Mostly Carbs, Puds, and Something to Wash it Down with. The burst of flavors is intoxicating, as is Sally's trademark wit and attention to detail- a must-buy for all Middle Eastern food enthusiasts.

- Over 100 recipes for mouthwatering Middle Eastern snacks

- All aspects of simple snack foods are covered: street food, home comfort food, meze-style spreads, even the drinks are included

- Bright, eye-catching design and mouth-watering photography
