Egyptian Recipes


Egypt as a whole, and in particular the Nile Delta and Nile Valley, has long been known for its agricultural produce - indeed in Roman times, it was considered the bread basket of the Mediterranean. Modern Egyptian cuisine reflects these traditions, and Egyptian cuisine tends to emphasize vegetables and legumes.
  • Ful medames - Ful medames is a popular meal that many consider to be Egypt's national dish. it is mostly eaten for breakfast, is sometimes considered a "peasant food" and is extremely filling (the effect has been described as a "stone in the stomach"). During Ramadan, the month when participating Muslims fast between dawn and sunset, the filling nature of the dish is of course considered a great advantage. Ful medames is made by mashing (partially or completely) fava beans, and then slow cooking them. The mashed cooked beans are eaten with onion, olive oil, parsley garlic and lemon.

  • Falafel - Chickpeas or fava beans made into a ball and fried.

  • Kufta - Ground mead with onions and spices made into a meatball.

  • Malukhiyah stew - A stew made from mallow leaves and chicken stock. It is flavored using coriander and garlic, and then served with chicken and white rice.

  • Kebab halla - Beef with onions.

  • Shawarma - Slivers of meat (chicken, goat or lamb) in pita bread with hummus, cucumber and tomato.

  • Kushari - Rice served with brown lentils, chickpeas and macaroni. Kushari is served topped with a spicy tomato sauce, garlic and vinegar. Caramelized onions are often used an a garnish. Although traditionally a vegetarian dish, nowadays kushari is sometimes topped with shawarma meat or fried liver.

  • Alfred A Knopf
Product Description:
In this updated and greatly enlarged edition of her Book of Middle Eastern Food, Claudia Roden re-creates a classic. The book was originally published here in 1972 and was hailed by James Beard as "a landmark in the field of cookery"; this new version represents the accumulation of the author's thirty years of further extensive travel throughout the ever-changing landscape of the Middle East, gathering recipes and stories.

Now Ms. Roden gives us more than 800 recipes, including the aromatic variations that accent a dish and define the country of origin: fried garlic and cumin and coriander from Egypt, cinnamon and allspice from Turkey, sumac and tamarind from Syria and Lebanon, pomegranate syrup from Iran, preserved lemon and harissa from North Africa. She has worked out simpler approaches to traditional dishes, using healthier ingredients and time-saving methods without ever sacrificing any of the extraordinary flavor, freshness, and texture that distinguish the cooking of this part of the world.

Throughout these pages she draws on all four of the region's major cooking styles:
        -        The refined haute cuisine of Iran, based on rice exquisitely prepared and embellished with a range of meats, vegetables, fruits, and nuts
        -        Arab cooking from Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan--at its finest today, and a good source for vegetable and bulgur wheat dishes
        -        The legendary Turkish cuisine, with its kebabs, wheat and rice dishes, yogurt salads, savory pies, and syrupy pastries
        -        North African cooking, particularly the splendid fare of Morocco, with its heady mix of hot and sweet, orchestrated to perfection in its couscous dishes and tagines

From the tantalizing mezze--those succulent bites of filled fillo crescents and cigars, chopped salads, and stuffed morsels, as well as tahina, chickpeas, and eggplant in their many guises--to the skewered meats and savory stews and hearty grain and vegetable dishes, here is a rich array of the cooking that Americans embrace today. No longer considered exotic--all the essential ingredients are now available in supermarkets, and the more rare can be obtained through mail order sources (readily available on the Internet)--the foods of the Middle East are a boon to the home cook looking for healthy, inexpensive, flavorful, and wonderfully satisfying dishes, both for everyday eating and for special occasions.

Product Description:
Judging from the evidence available from depictions of daily life on tombs and in historical texts, the ancient Egyptians were just as enthusiastic about good food and generous hospitality as are their descendants today. Magda Mehdawy and Amr Hussein have done extensive research on the cultivation, gathering, preparation, and presentation of food in ancient Egypt and have developed nearly a hundred recipes that will be perfectly recognizable to anyone familiar with modern Egyptian food.
Beautifully illustrated with scenes from tomb reliefs, objects and artifacts in museum exhibits, and modern photographs, the recipes are accompanied by explanatory material that describes the ancient home and kitchen, cooking vessels and methods, table manners and etiquette, banquets, beverages, and ingredients. Traditional feasts and religious occasions with their own culinary traditions are described, including some that are still celebrated today. A glossary of ingredients and place names provides a useful guide to unfamiliar terms.

The first cookbook written by the Or Chadash Sisterhood Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel, Cooking the Sephardic Way, was published forty years ago and continues to be a best seller. The sisterhood has now added to their repertoire with the Sephardic Heritage Cookbook.

While the original membership of Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel could trace their family history to the Ottoman Empire, the Temple Sisterhood has expanded to include women from Iran, Morocco, Egypt, Israel, and the Caribbean. They too are eager to share their heritage and make the Sephardic Heritage Cookbook an eclectic mix of delicious dishes.

Many recipes include photos to use as a reference.

The authors have also included family stories. Each recipe was collected during luncheons in which sisterhood members shared their traditions with each other and ensured that their warm family memories would never be forgotten. The journeys and the bonds the members have formed by cooking together are truly inspiring.

Product Description:
The Arabic culinary tradition burst onto the scene in the middle of the tenth century, when al-Warrāq compiled a culinary treatise titled al-Kitab al-Tabikh (The Book of Dishes), containing over 600 recipes. However, it would take another ten centuries for cookery books to be produced in the European continent. For centuries to come, gastronomic writing would remain the sole preserve of the Arab-Muslim world, with cooking manuals and recipe books being produced from Baghdad, Aleppo and Egypt in the East, to Muslim Spain, Morocco and Tunisia in the West.



A total of nine complete cookery books have survived from this time, containing a total of nearly four thousand recipes. The Sultan’s Feast by the Egyptian Ibn Mubārak Shāh in the fifteenth century is one such book. Reflecting the importance of gastronomy in Arab culture, this culinary treatise features more than 330 recipes – from bread-making and omelettes, to sweets, pickling and aromatics – and tips on a range of topics, from essentials a cook should know to how to distil drinkable water.



Available in English for the first time, this critical bilingual volume offers a sophisticated insight into the world of medieval Arabic gastronomic writing.
