Probably the best of all gluten free cookbooks, the author focuses on Italian, French and Middle Eastern cuisines--all of them gluten free--that stand on their own as excellent recipes. If you are gluten sensitive, then you're in for a treat, as the food prepared from these recipes are a taste sensation.

patients with celiac disease have to contend not only with food malabsorption and immune reactions to gluten, but also with poor tasting foods that lack the richness and versatility of the middle eastern cuisine as presented by chef sanaa in her interesting new book.
This book make amends for this culinary deficiency, offering a multitude of recipes and delicious concoctions of mediterranean staples without the need for gluten at all. It comes in especially handy for families with a first degree relative, be it a parent, sibling or child with the disease. It obviates the need to prepare two different meals concomitantly.. The whole family will enjoy sumptuous appetizers, main dish and desert with the same taste, presentation and caloric value but without gluten and its possible complications. The disease is genetic and its familial incidence is 1:22, indicating a high probability of involvement in families. The book presents an excellent solution to a vexing, chronic and occasionally debilitating disease.

I chose this rating because each of the two recipes I chose were both difficult to prepare, time consuming, and extremely disappointing upon completion.

Not very appetizing.either.

Of course, it is only two out of all the others but I have lost my interest in this cookbook.

The only surprise I had were the number of recipes that included hamburger (red meat) that is somewhat limited on a Mediterranean diet. Otherwise, it provides a variety of menus that work for the two diet restrictions in our home.

Not a bad cookbook for people looking for some basic gluten free Middle Eastern recipes - and there are tons of recipes. If you're unfamiliar with Mediterranean cooking a few photos would have helped. There are some really useful bits, like how to make different cheeses and yogurts, and some various bread recipes. Some meals are just naturally gluten free. Some of my favorite middle eastern dishes are missing, and I was hoping there would have been a bit more attempt to adapt them to be gf. Some places could use more editing and instructions, and I would have liked to see some variation on the flours used. Considering there isn't much out there for Middle Eastern/Mediterranean gf cookbooks though, this is a good start.
