A Mid-East Feast: An Edible Mosaic {Giveaway Closed}

 

Did you think we’d cook through Faith’s book and not offer a copy to you? That’d be silly.

I sure hope you didn’t miss a single recipe but here’s a brief recap for you…

We made fritters. Savory pancakes made of zucchini and onion, held together by eggs. Seriously easy to make and perfect for both breakfast or an appetizer.

We made quite possibly one of my favorite chicken dishes to date. No, I’m not even kidding. Tender spiced chicken strips layered with tangy pickles and mayonnaise on soft pita bread to create a delicious Middle-Eastern wrap.

And we finished with what others say was an amazing dessert and due to my own ingredient issues… not the best result. Totally blaming the ingredients. Totally. Had I been able to find, at the very least, semolina flour the result would have been far better. Yes, I know it can be ordered but the cost of shipping didn’t seem worth it to me at the time. Oh how wrong I clearly was. Make this… with semolina and you’ll have perfect results.

I want to make this

And this. Yes, I know that’s weird because I don’t like tomatoes but it just looks so fun!

I love that every recipe in this book has a picture. What is a cookbook without pictures?! We eat with our eyes first. So, thank you Faith for providing beautiful pictures to accompany every recipe you’re sharing with the world.

At the very end, Faith even offers a list of Middle Eastern grocery stores. This section is the only one I would change. I’d prefer the locations broken up by state or region instead of just country. It’d be easier to sort though. Not a deal breaker kind of issue and maybe a non-issue to most.

Do you want a chance to win your own copy?

    Rachel, thank you so, so much for participating in this event. I am overwhelmed at the positive feedback I have received (and I thank you for your honesty in everything!). I know it sounds funny, but a book really feels like a child in a lot of ways – something you pour your heart and soul into. I appreciate more than words can say the fact that you took the time to take part in this. xo

    I have no one favorite, instead liking lots of them equally. :-) I do really like falafel — that’s probably one of the easier dishes to make — but also kebabs, and just about any dish that involves tomatoes and chickpeas.

    A girl can’t go wrong with hummus (with blue corn tortilla chips or homemade pita chips)… I make it all the time! YUMMY!

    These recipes look totally great. My hubby and I would love this cookbook!

    My favorite Middle Eastern food is falafel and the best one I had was in Damascus, Syria, when everything was still peaceful. I will always remember this wonderful restaurant at the old souk…

    I grow eggplant in my garden and always seem to have extra. Baba ghannouj spread on warm pita bread is the perfect (and delicious) way to use up all of that extra eggplant. Also I could not comment on Middle Eastern food without mentioning how delicious blakawa is – the stickier the better.
