The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mellos
The Complete Middle East Cookbook
This regional Middle East cookbook was first published in 1979 and has had numerous reprintings. My version was a 2002 reprint. The Complete Middle East Cookbook has just about everything you want to know about Middle Eastern cooking with photographs and illustrations throughout. Tess Mallos does a great job of describing the recipes, and divides the cooking by region: Greece; Cyprus; Turkey; Armenia; Syria, Lebanon, Jordan; Iraq; The Gulf States; Yemen; Egypt; Iran; and Afghanistan.
