Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Khalife, founder and owner of the first food channel in the Arab world, Soufra Daimeh Food Network, and author of more than 70 cookbooks, puts her considerable experience to work in this winning collection of over 90 recipes for Mediterranean-style starters. With most dishes calling for just a handful of ingredients, even inexperienced cooks will be able to prepare appetizers such as the Lebanese Potatoes in Oil and Lemon Dressing, Beirut-Style Chickpea Dip, Walnut Dip and basic salads in a matter of minutes. More confident cooks will want to try their hand at one of the many croquette recipes scattered throughout the book, with fillings such as split peas, zucchini, and beef and nuts as well as heartier fare such as her many stuffed pastries. Mussels stuffed with an exotic mix of rice, currants, pine nuts and a bevy of spices is sure to satisfy, as are more familiar dishes such as Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and marinated lamb shish kebabs. There are enough simple, flavor-packed dishes for just about any appetite or gathering, giving cooks plenty of tasty ways to expand their palates without breaking the bank or spending an entire day in the kitchen.

Format: Hardcover
Anyone looking for delicious appetizers, or light meal ideas, will find Mezze Modern a welcome addition to their cookbook library. Mezze Modern includes quick recipes for mezze (traditionally served as pre-dinner snacks) from the somewhat varied cusines of Turkey, Greece and Lebanon, most of them made with fresh, vegetarian ingredients (there are a few recipes calling for lamb, fish and poultry). I highly recommend this book for single people (like me) who crave bright, healthy and satisfying dishes which can be thrown together with a few ingredients, in very little time, and without too much effort. My copy is going to be dog-eared and EVOO stained in very short order.
