I bought this book with the expectation that the second edition will bring with it improvement in the paper, colored photos and the general organisation of the book. I was mistaken. Yes the new edition is not as bulky and it is hard cover printed on glossy paper with colored photos here and there. However, the smaller font size and the quality of the print meant it is difficult to follow the recipes. The colored boxes are difficult to read due to their bright colors. The main problem however, lies in the absence of reference pages to the within chapter contents at the beginning of each chapter which used to exist in the previous edition. This means every time you are looking for a recipe, you have to go the index which has a very small size font.
I still think the book provides one of the most resourceful information on the cooking in Iraq. By simply following the recipes, you will be able to cook many authentic tasted meals.
My only complaint is that I cannot seem to get my samoon to come out right, no matter what I try. But that's probably the oven, definitely not the recipe.
This is a wonderful book with really fun, easy food to try. We are having a great time with it.
Certainly, the author had made great effort to get these recipes in one book and got to salute her for this wonderful work preserving our great tradition, however we think the book needs sort of some tweaks i.e. the fonts are so faint to read ! some of the recipes are not accurate e.g. the bread (samoon) should not have oil added to the mixture of flour and water otherwise it would turn to a kind of cake rather than bread. All together, the book is great and I advise every Iraqi family should have it
