I am an American married to an Afghani and this cookbook after practicing for over seven years, this cookbook in one reading took all the I thought and was told, the difficulty and mystery out of the Afghani way of cooking. I have even been told by many of my in-laws that I cook now better then most Afghani woman. It could be also that most of my in-laws grew up having the cooking done for them and as for us Americans we grow up cooking for ourselves. I considered my self a very experienced cook and this cook book was SO easy and had delicious recipes.

I am an inexperienced cook, but I am engaged to a native Afghan who misses his mom's cooking, so I ordered this book. I've made four recipes so far, and he has been thrilled with each one! In Afghanistan, hospitality is paramount, and a cook can show honor to a guest by using lots of oil to cook with. This book takes American tastes into account and reduces much of the excess oil in these traditional recipes. The flavors are intricate but very delicate and aromatic. I highly recommend this book!

I was first introduced to Afghani cooking when browsing through the Minneapolis reader's choice awards for restaurants and came across "Da Afghan" restaurant. The food was fantastic. When I heard they had a cook book, I was a bit surprised and skeptical.

Well, I am happy to say my family and I have thoroughly enjoyed this cook book for at least 10 years. And yes, I was able to re-create and share some of my favorite dishes from the restaurant. From simple to complex, you're going to find something enjoyable whether you're short on time or planning a major get-to-gather. In my opinion, the kabob recipes are worth the cost alone. However, when you add in recipes for the Naan bread, chutneys (tomato and cilantro are my favorite), Aushok (spinach filled pasta), and various lamb recipes (kofta kabob in particular) you have a real bargain. Here's what the book covers in total: Appetizers, Salads, Soups, Entrees, Kabobs, Vegetables, Sauces, Desserts, Beverages, and some miscellaneous stuff in the back.

If you already enjoy Afghani food, or are exploring the possibilities, get Afghan Cooking and place your time and effort into authentic recipes. I was astonished to re-create some of my favorite dishes from an award-winning restaurant right at home.

I have some Afghan friends and wanted to make them an authentic Afghani dinner. I found this book and was able to make a wonderful meal. The recipes were easy to follow and I didn't have any problem finding the ingredients. I have since made several more of the recipes and found them all to be delicious.

This cookbook is full of fantastic recipes that are mostly simple for a chef becoming familiar with Afghani cooking and yet delicious. A few of the ingredients can be tricky to find but are well worth a trip to a specialty grocer.

Having been a patron of Da Afghan for many years - it's closing in 2010 was very disappointing. For whatever reason it took me ages to realize I could easily order the cookbook right here on Amazon.

If you knew the restaurant - then this is for you! The recipes are not overly complex, but are exactly what you ordered off the menu. Our first dinner from the cookbook consisted of Naan bread, Chutney (green & red), Beef Samosas and their "Friday Night Lamb Shank Special". And it was perfect. The only thing missing was the warm hugs and handshakes from the staff (often times Asad, the owner/author himself)!

This is worth every cent!
