Thirty-two recipes for starters, main courses, desserts, and drinks have been selected among thousands submitted by Saudi families. Illustrated with vibrant photographs of Saudi cooks in the intimacy of their kitchens and organized in five chapters—“Rice,” “Cardamom,” “Lamb,” “Dates,” and “Wheat”—the recipes are easy to reproduce at home, with step-by-step instructions and images. Texts by culinary experts introduce readers to local history, dietary traditions, proverbs, and anecdotes that uncover this nation’s genuine way of life and inviting culinary heritage.
