h4. From the publisher

From caviar markets in Azerbaijan to whirling dervishes and the fairground foods of Turkey, Jordanian tea houses to the sweet markets of Lebanon, this is a book of exotic tastes and sights. The recipes evoke the flavors of some very old cuisines, using aromatic spices, strange fruits and grains, exotic pickles, and preserves.  The result is food with wonderful flavors, produced with minimum effort.
