Mayan Couscous

Rating: 4.5 stars 223
Many visitors to Merida and Yucatan are surprised to discover excellent Middle Eastern restaurants and such things as kibis offered by local vendors. The cooks of the area happily adopted some of the recipes and ingredients of the Lebanese immigrants who arrived more than a century ago. Here's a Yucatecan version of couscous salad.

Moroccan Couscous

Rating: 4.5 stars 153
This dish is great served with my Lamb Tagine and Cucumber Raita also on this site.

Spicy Baked Feta (Feta Psiti)

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
This is such an easy appetizer that never fails to impress! People are familiar with feta, but this traditional Greek way of preparing is not as well known. The salty/sour taste of the feta offsets the heat of the chili flakes - so don't be afraid to load them on! Serve with crusty bread or toast.

Tomato Bisque III

Rating: 4.5 stars 171
This is a really fast and easy tomato soup recipe. My kids even liked it. I originally got it from a Food and Wine magazine, but I've tweaked it a little to suit my taste. The nutmeg makes the taste a little more complex.
