My Review 

The Sahtein cookbook is my right hand in Lebanese cooking. It opens the door to Middle Eastern cooking. The first recipe I tried was Hummos (of course, lol). I added low sodium soy sauce instead of salt. I make the tabbouleh, fattoush, baba ghannouj, fool mudammas, tahini sauce, roast leg of lamb frequently. This cook book is still available. I can't imagine not having this cook book. I don't loan it out, I tell people where they can purchase it. This can be purchased at the Tiger Bakery in Sylvania, OH. I highly, highly, highly recommend this cookbook. I can't praise this cookbook enough. I proudly give it 1 million stars.

What Made you Purchase This Cookbook? 

I wanted to learn to cook the food and appetizers I would order at the Beirut Restaurant in Toledo,OH. This cookbook was for sale at the Beirut Bakery located near the restaurant, so I purchased it.

What are Some of Your Favorite Recipes From This Book? 

My favorite recipes are the Hummos, Tahineh Sauce, Baba Ghannouj, Fool Mudammas, Fattoush, Tabbouleh, Tomato Salad with Tahineh Sauce, Kibbeh, Stuffed Grape Leaves, and The Roast Leg of Lamb.

What Sets This Book Apart From Others? 

The recipes are very easy to follow, and they are authentic. The Arab Women Union of Southfield, MI compiled this cookbook
