It is a well-known fact that the cuisine of the Mediterranean is one of the healthiest diets known to man. Meat is used sparingly and butter is replaced by aromatic olive oil. This allows the subtle flavours of herbs and spices to emerge. The cuisine of the Levant - Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Syria - is full of colourful, fresh and delicious dishes that are low in cholesterol and high in flavour.
This book presents a selection of the best recipes from the region. Each dish has a nutritional breakdown listing the amount of calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium contained in the food, so that you can plan your diet without depriving yourself of delicious flavours.
