Bedouin hospitality has not changed over the ages but Arabian cuisine has undergone a remarkable evolution in the last 100 years, making it extremely diverse. This diversity is due, in part, to the explosion of wealth on the Arabian peninsula which has drawn peoplealong with their foods and cooking methodsfrom around the world. The blending of these culinary worlds has produced something remarkable. In The Arabian Nights Cookbook, author Habeeb Salloum has compiled an amazing array of recipes that celebrate this blending of cultures while still making it compatible with the everyday kitchens of the Western world.

    'Claudia Roden is no more a simple cookbook writer than Marcel Proust was a biscuit baker. She is, rather, memorialist, historian, ethnographer, anthropologist, essayist, poet... The Book of Jewish Food is her masterpiece (though the recipes are glorious), the richest and most sensuous encyclopedia of Jewish life ever set in print.'
    Simon Schama

    'One does not have to be Jewish to appreciate this book... buy it for the recipes... for couscous with orange pumpkins and raisins, Syrian stuffed fried kibbeh, chicken croquettes Burmese style, "the bride's pigeons" from Morocco, simple refreshing vegetable salads from the Mediterranean, and delicious northern European desserts and pastries.'
