The Food Lovers' Cookbook Collection
North African Cookery by Arto der Haroutunian
Every book Arto der Haroutunian has produced has been a classic. His thoughtful, erudite writing has helped explain to recalcitrant Westerners the subtlety, complexity and diversity of Middle Eastern and North African cooking.
His credentials are impeccable! He was born and raised in Syria in the town of Aleppo (a great food city). He moved to England and studied architecture, which is his primary profession. He also writes about food when he is not working on the composition of a music score or dashing off a painting for the next exhibition. He is a true polymath.
We have included a second book from this author in our Collection because it covers another important part of the globe where some beautifull and exciting food is prepared.
Inside you will find recipes from the cuisines of Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya among others.
Arto der Haroutunian is a brilliant observer of the food of the Middle East and North Africa and this book is a great example of his ability to chronicle the important food of the North African region.
