Bayrut: The Cookbook: Recipes from the Heart of a Lebanese City Kitchen

From the publisher:

A stunning, authentic, and evocative cookbook on the food of Beirut - heart of the Lebanon.

With stunning food and travel photography, this cookbook explores the city with a troubled past but a huge and vibrant foodie reputation: Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. Perfectly poised between the Middle East and the Mediterranean, Lebanese food has never been so popular, but Beiruti food has a character all its own and this book sets out to prove it.

There’s no ignoring the turmoil the city has withstood, but it is also a place of untold culinary richness, of color and rebirth, and a vibrant spirit that refuses to hide. This book tells the story of its cuisine, featuring simple-to-make, evocative and delicious Beiruti recipes drawn from home kitchens, ferns (street ovens), kaak (purse-bread) vendors, and from the mezze cafés. Care has been taken to choose internationally available ingredients, so nothing is too difficult for the home cook to try.
