and Tabbouleh are not considered foreign words any more - through
sheer good taste and a growing interest in a healthy Mediterranean
diet, they have earned their place in the common vernacular of
English speakers around the world. But the Lebanese have a secret
which, thanks to Barbara Abdeni Massad, is now yours to make your
own: their beloved hummus and tabbouleh are just the tip of the
iceberg. A whole world of delights awaits you within these pages.
The world mezze may not translate directly, but don't let that
put you off. It's best part of eating Lebanese - as much a social
event as it is a meal, mezze is a fabulous ambassador for a culture
which prides itself on entertaining eating healthy and making
every guest feel uniquely indulged and reluctant to ever leave
the table, except possibly for a nap! If you are lucky enough
to experience a meal served traditionally beginning with mezze,
you'll note that a ritual unfolds. The table will be set with
an amazingly colorful and appetizing array of fresh vegetables
on a platter, often sparkling with droplets of water, freshly
washed just for you. No sooner have you cut into a softball-sized
tomato than the center of the table is cleared to accommodate
a series of fresh salads and cold appetizers, served in small
plates meant for sharing. And just when you imagine your taste
buds can't take anymore, the hot appetizers start to appear. Now
you know you have a serious problem. Should you have started with
smaller portions to save room for the plates which are still coming?
Do you really need to change your plate for a clean one? Is it
possible to press "reset' and start again?
This the magic of mezze, why cooking and sharing food the Lebanese
way brings people together, breaking cultural barriers around
a table where eating so much more than "fast" food.
In that moment, we feed the body and nourish the soul. It is truly
a labor of love.
This collection of mezze recipes reflects Barbara's desire to
guide us back towards simplicity Fresh, seasonal ingredients and
easy techniques encourage and support even the least experienced
cook to success. She has distilled her own life experiences, tested
over time, to bring you the best recipes available.
