All the recipes are acurate and they come out perfect.

As an American who married an Egyptian, I am always looking for recipes to make my husband feel more connected (and of course to impress my in-laws!)
Courtney Osborne
I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in Middle Eastern cooking, especially Egyptian, which can be difficult to find.

After collecting Middle Eastern cookbooks for over 30 years, I decided to add to my collection by purchasing Dining on the Nile: Exploring Egyptian Cooking. It's not only a cookbook but an enjoyable book to read as the author has provided some short stories. I have tried numerous recipes and they have turned out perfect! The book is published for the American kitchen so the measurements and ingredients are easily understood. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in Middle Eastern cooking, especially Egyptian, which can be difficult to find. As a bonus, there are many vegetarian recipes especially helpful to Orthodox Christians during the fasts of the church year. Great Book!

The minute I got this book I made one of my favorite recipes for Koshari. There are many different versions of this dish but this was the only book that had the version that my wonderful husband's mother makes. Mine isn't as good as hers...but...wonderful. Overall, this book is well rounded with recipes of Egypt. And thank you for the apricot pudding recipe...I've had it once when I was in Egypt and the author is right...once you have it you will never forget it and will often dream about it. I hope I can do her recipe justice.

I am very pleased with this cookbook. I am married to a Christian Egyptian. This is the first book I have found to give the true history of the Coptics and offer a wide variety of tasty food. Thank you for making a great cookbook. I recommend it highly.
