Tenth Anniversary Edition!
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. This book 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 mezze-style spreads. In malls and farmers markets across the world, food on the go has become a stylish and popular way to eat.
This book picks out the Middle East's most exciting street foods and mezze dishes, together with a variety of homey 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, Desserts, 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.
