Review: ‘Arabesque: A Taste of Morocco, Turkey, & Lebanon’ – Food – The Austin Chronicle

I have very mixed feelings about this book. The pistachio cake was worth the price of the book. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Not rating, because I didn’t make any of the receipes – just wanted to warn people off of the e-edition. I’ve started using pomegranate molasses in so many non-Lebanese dishes that I wonder how I managed without it for so long. There are a few countries of the area which are left out such as Libya.
