'When it comes to Middle Eastern cooking, the buck stops with Greg Malouf.'
'There’s not a lot Greg Malouf doesn’t know about Middle Eastern food – for years he’s exposed the public to the cuisine through his MoMo restaurant and five books, written with former wife Lucy and based on travels in the region. His take, while grounded in tradition, is to apply a contemporary twist to fare from territories stretching from Moorish Spain to North Africa and Turkey. This tome of tweaked and updated recipes ... sums up Greg’s philosophy and is divided into soups, small dishes, large dishes, side dishes, bakery, sweet and larder, running from the basic (parsnip skordalia, taramasalata) to the refined (pigeon tagine with dates and ginger, the classic veiled quail with rice, date and rose petal stuffing). An impressive collection.'
