I really wanted to love this book and cook many, many recipes. Unfortunately, there just aren't that many recipes that are a good fit for my family, and my desire to try them dropped dramatically after the poor outcome of what should have been one of the simplest recipes in the book.
On the plus side, there's some great information in this book (though the "Basic Arabian Glossary is a joke with only seven words!), including "How to enjoy an effortless festive Arabic meal at home" "Music to accompany a wonderful Arabian dinner party", Arabia menus, listings for grocery stores (both physical and online) and more. This could be a great book for people with access to Arabic ingredients, and love for Arabian food, it just wasn't a good fit for me.
I received a copy of this book from Abrams books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I'm a novice when it comes to getting separated tahini in a jar to mix together, so let me pass on what I learned. Turn the whole jar of separated tahini out into a bowl with high sides. Use an emmersion blender to break things up a bit. You can finish making it creamy with a whisk attachment or mixer. You could probably also use a blender or food processor. Put the blended tahini back in the jar and refrigerate if necessary. Hopefully this will save you some time.
