Item Description...
In this beautifully illustrated volume, Magda Mehdawy has gathered in one book the most complete collection of Egyptian recipes ever assembled. Drawing on the traditional recipes she learned from her grandmother and other members of her generation, Mehdawy offers a surprising range of sumptuous recipes and unusual flavors that are part of Egypt's millennia-long cultural heritage. She also reveals the historical depth of the national cuisine, beginning with a section on food and wine-making techniques used by the ancient Egyptians. For readers interested in more recent traditions, Mehdawy provides lists of typical menus served on Islamic holidays and feasts, and a fascinating overview of traditional beliefs regarding vegetables and spices.

Great Egyptian Recipes  Oct 28, 2007
I have purchased every Egyptian cookbook I can find to try and find the most authentic recipes to cook for my Egyptian fiance, and this is absolutely the best in terms of the food his Mom cooks. I would definitely recommend this cookbook to anyone who is enjoys or is interested in experiencing Egyptian food at its best.
P Shaker  Mar 10, 2007
The four star rating I gave this book is for the beautiful colored pictures - they are on each and every page! The range of recipes is quite encompassing but I do have some concerns in regard to the directions and flavoring of the dishes. You will need to have some basic knowledge of Middle Eastern cooking/spice mixes, etc., to have these recipes come out as they should. The pictures are a great help to show the completed product. One example of poor instructions/spices is the recipe for Macaroni Bechamel. It originally is quite a tedious recipe and the recipe contained in the book is not clear. Also, there are problems with translations; tomato juice is listed in numerous recipes when it should probably read "tomato sauce", the recipe for veal sweetbreads is shown as "thyroid glands" instead of thymus glands. Also, it lists ingredients like "gullash", "rugag" and "quata'if". Gullash would be the same as our phyllo (filo) dough. But, rugag is a type of cracker bread and quata'if is a small pancake. It's too bad that she didn't include recipes on how to make these. Fortunately, I have recipes for both these items but the reader new to this cuisine would be confused. I would only give two stars for the recipes themselves. It's a wonderful book to read for the "armchair cook". I am happy with my purchase!
A top pick for any avid cook   Feb 6, 2007
"My Egyptian Grandmother's Kitchen: Traditional Dishes Sweet & Savory" is one of the nicest cookbooks we've seen, pairing gorgeous, good-size and clear color photos on every page with a range of traditional Egyptian dishes - many not seen in the few competing Egyptian-only cookbooks on the market. Most Egyptian food is tossed into more general Middle Eastern cookbooks, so it's a treat to see a survey of the country's unique cuisine, and one taken from an elder's recipes. Measurements in metric will require American users to convert - but with Catfish Casserole with Cracked Wheat and Grilled Fish With Oil and Lime on the menu, the recipes motivate users to learn. A top pick for any avid cook - and sure to be a hit for any public library with a strong ethnic cookbook section.
