The mid eastern cuisine I love
The cuisine of Greece, Turkey, and other Eastern Mediterranean countries have much in common with each other: lamb is used extensively in a great variety of dishes, the best known of which are shish kebab and souvlaki, while yoghurt, just now becoming more popular in America, has enjoyed considerable use in Eastern Mediterranean countries, to the point of it being considered a staple. Many recipes for both are included in this web page, along with scores of others for appetizers, soups, fish, poultry, meat, vegetables including stuffed, salads, sauces, and desserts. A special section on rice dishes, both tasty and economical, is included because of its importance in the region`s cuisine. Many of these recipes are especially well suited to outdoor charcoal cooking, which adds extra flavor and authenticity to them. Ingredients are easily purchased at any local supermarket; the recipes themselves are easy to follow. With illustrations, Louise`s cuisine is a truly fascinating aid to more interesting and delicious meals.
