Perfectly poised between the Middle East and the Mediterranean, Lebanese cuisine is hugely popular — famed for its varied and flavourful regional dishes that emphasize whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables and seafood.

Beirut’s ever-changing, often turbulent, heritage means that its food has evolved an exciting character of its own. In this book, Hisham Assaad shows you the best the city has to offer, with accessible, delicious recipes, ranging from the classics to more modern fare. He tells the story of a city with energy and diversity, of multiple cultures and traditions, with ever-popular street food, a thriving restaurant and café scene, and traditional family favourites handed down through generations. Create lavish breakfast spreads, traditional Sunday feasts, fresh and vibrant salads, easy and nutritious dinners, or even an afternoon tea with perfumed sweets and delicacies.

With stunning photography, this book will transport you to the cultural melting pot that is Beirut — a city rightly famed for its incredible food.
