Rice Pasta Couscous review

The reviews for Rice Pasta Couscous are beginning to be published. This one was posted on the blog The Knack under seven cookbooks to savor this fall.

Rice Pasta Couscous: The Heart of the Mediterranean Kitchen by Jeff Koehler

Having co-hosted a food book club that takes place around the Mediterranean, I have really enjoying speaking about the cuisines of different cultures and am fascinated by how many of the same ingredients are used in each country.

Jeff Koehler is astoundingly knowledgeable in the different countries, regions and delicacies and gives thorough recipes for really interesting dishes that probably won’t show up in too many of the cookbooks on your shelf.

Having read hundreds and hundreds of cookbooks, I can honestly say I’ve never come across one such as this - heartfelt, rich with history and authentic dishes that you will honestly be able to prepare on your own with ingredients that are probably already in your pantry.

I can’t wait to make the Rice with Monkfish and Artichokes (Ebro Delta, Spain), The Countess’s Whiskey Risotto with Rosemary (Vercelli, Italy), Lentil Chorba (Algers, Algeria), Fresh Nettle Pasta (Malta), Kushary (Egypt), Lamb Couscous with Meatballs (Tunisia) and Braised Chicken Buried in Sweet Couscous (Tangier, Morocco).

Oh my. Just wait until I tell the bookclub about this one!
