Eat, Habibi, Eat!

Fresh Recipes for Modern Egyptian Cooking



A fresh, fun take on Middle Eastern cooking, from Canadian-Egyptian chef and television host, Shahir Massoud.

Discover innovative, flavor-packed recipes for Middle Eastern dishes, inspired by author Shahir Massoud's Egyptian upbringing. From home-friendly adaptations of street foods and casual everyday staples, to new interpretations of traditional recipes, Eat, Habibi, Eat! (eat, my love, eat!) encourages you to explore delicious new dishes at home. Shahir shares his personal connections to the recipes in his warm and playful voice--from his dad's request that friends fill their suitcases with food when they come home from Egypt, to his mother's insistence that he mustn't dare alter his great uncle's favorite breakfast recipe. The recipes themselves are simple, straightforward, and easy to follow. Shahir guides readers how to build a Middle Eastern pantry with a few special items, but mostly uses ingredients that are easily available at supermarkets or bulk stores.
Combining his Egyptian upbringing with his classical chef training, Shahir has included 100 original, authentic recipes in Eat, Habibi, Eat!, including:

Breakfasts: Egg in a Cloud Shakshuka; Egyptian Rice Pudding with Fall Spices and Orange
Snacks: Chickpea Fries with Harissa Mayo; Middle Eastern Steak Tartare
Soups: Spinach and Kale "Mulukhiyah"; Chickpea and Tomato Halabissa
Sandwiches: Beef Hawashi; Five-Hour 'Shortcut' Basturma
Salads: Heirloom Tomato Fattoush; Halloumi and Orange-Glazed Beet
Mains: Coffee and Coriander Beef Ribs with Pomegranate BBQ Sauce; Chicken Sharkaseya with Walnut Sauce
Sweets: Classic Konafa with Wine and Cherry Compote; Stuffed Arabic Pancakes with Maple Roasted Apples

Packed with sumptuous, color-rich photography, this cookbook is a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds. Whether you are already an aficionado of Middle Eastern cuisine, or have never heard of sumac before, this book will inspire you to try something new in the kitchen, and have fun doing it. Come on--eat, habibi, eat!
