Bayrut: Food and Stories from Beirut's Souks to the Suburbs (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Lebanon's vibrant capital Beirut (AKA, Bayrut) is wonderfully chaotic and endlessly exhilarating. Its energy, diversity and intoxicating food culture make it one of the most incredible cities in the Middle East to explore.

Famed for its varied, flavourful dishes that emphasize whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables and seafood, Beirut is a true foodies paradise. Yet, bizarrely, it's still relatively under-appreciated as a cuisine. It's about time we changed that...

Throughout this book, Hisham Assaad provides more than just 70 accessible and mouth-watering recipes. Beirut is packed with stunning location photography and personal anecdotes from Hisham, making it a love letter about (and to) the Middle Eastern capital.

See the incredible food and read stories from this intoxicating city - from classic dishes to the modern Lebanese fare you'll find dotted throughout the capital. Through stories, photographs and recipes, Hisham guides you through the different areas of the city.
