Praise For The Lebanese Kitchen

"It's time for another one of Phaidon's in-depth, encyclopedic looks at cuisine. This time around, it's the all-too-often overlooked cuisine of Lebanon, and Salma Hage shares the recipes that have been passed down in her family for generations." - Eater National

"Phaidon's cookbook division alternates between quirky, specialize works. . .and definitive, all-inclusive mega-volumes. . .This collection, by Hage, a Lebanese housewife with half a century of home cooking under her belt, falls firmly into the latter camp, with 500 straightforward recipes covering every aspect of her native cuisine." - Publishers Weekly

". . .simple, soulful recipes that taste of home." - T: The New York Times Style Magazine

"Lined with tessellated paper evocative of the architecture of the place itself, The Lebanese Kitchen is an artistically photographed book of elegant recipes. . .Be warned, however, that it's hard to peel one's eyes away from the images of delicate dishwear and flatbread topped with halloumi, avocado, and parsley salad." - Vogue

"Hage's food is solid and satisfying. . .The beautiful main courses are earthy and flavorful. . .And pretty much all of it can be created without a trip to a Middle Eastern grocery store." - The Washington Post

"The Middle East's most cosmopolitan cuisine gets its due in a soup-to-sweets compendium, covering 500 spare and easy-to-follow recipes." - Time Out New York

". . .cooking from the book is like having a smiling Lebanese granny at your elbow leading you through all 11 chapters. The food within is amazing. . .The Lebanese Kitchen is brilliant." - The Austin Chronicle

". . .[Lebanon]'s gastronomic splendor gets its due in Salma Hage's comprehensive new cookbook." - Entertainment Weekly

". . will warm your heart and your stomach." - Time.com
