Product details

For over a decade Tony Kitous has been Britain's most passionate provider of contemporary Lebanese and North African food. His restaurants were the first in London to merge traditional Arabic cooking with easy contemporary eating. There are now seven Comptoir Libanais restaurants in London with more planned in the next 18 months. The success of Comptoir Libanais restaurants centres on an easy, relaxed cafe-style of food: light Arabic home cooking mixed with familiar bistro flavours and techniques. Tony Kitous' recipes combine fresh vibrant vegetable dishes with simple grills, flat breads, grains, herb salads and dips. Pastries are richly flavoured and delicate, made with syrups and spices. Absolutely the menu for today and adaptable for the home cook. Containing eighty recipes, each one with a full-page photograph, Comptoir Libanais makes achieving a great result easy at home. Tony Kitous' approach and shortcuts inspire new ways to prepare readily-available ingredients: big on spices, fresh herbs and bright citrus flavours drawn from traditional Arabic cooking. The book is strong on vegetarian and vegan dishes, alongside simple grilled or poached meats, fish and beautiful sauces that are quick to prepare or make in advance. If you want a quick snack for yourself, or an extraordinary celebration feast, all the how-to you'll need is here. Bringing together the passion of owner Tony Kitous, the extraordinary designs of award-winning graphic artist Rana Salam, and bestselling author and photographer Dan Lepard, the Comptoir Libanais cookbook blends a vibrant culinary tradition with modern flavours and cooking methods.

"The capital's best meze" Elle "We love Comptoir Libanais ... not only for its delicious Lebanese fast food but for its stylish surroundings" Vogue "Tony Kitous is central London's king of Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine" Restaurant Magazine "The new Luxe!" The Daily Telegraph "'[Lepard] and Kitous have produced a stylish cookbook that tells the secrets of Kitous's kitchen. When you know Kitous arrived in Britain at the age of 18 with GBP70 in his pocket, a love of home cooking and no chef's training at all, his achievements are truly extraordinary.'" -- Rose Prince The Daily Telegraph
