Title: Mon Cours de Cuisine – Les Basiques Orientaux
Intro: 80 Recettes illustrées pas à pas
Why I like it:
As a European, I always find it difficult to properly cook dishes that are part of a cooking culture tradition very different from mine.
This book is a precious help!
The book is in French but even if you will only understand a few words, you will be able to prepare the recipes as the photos will take you through each step very clearly.
The version I bought includes recipes from Lebanon, Iran, Greece, Turkey, Morocco and Tunisia.
The same book exists for Asian and Indian recipes, and for something else that I can’t remember right now – sorry!!!
The photos show a very tidy kitchen surface – nothing even close to my messy one! – and you can see for example, how to use phyllo pastry, which for me has always been a mystery!
If you feel like cooking something completely different but you don’t feel adventurous enough, this book will definitely take you step by step to a delicious – hopefully – oriental dish!
