    I've a good one at home, I'll look up the title for you tonight. It's like an encyclopedia of middle eastern cooking, with pictures of the common ingredients - very helpful, as it was written in Britain and some of the names for foods are different (aubergines instead of eggplants). I believe it covers North Africa (Morocco to Egypt), southern Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Israel, and the Arabian penisula.

    Very good foods. icon_smile.gif

    Ethnic foods are awesome. icon_biggrin.gif

    There is a really good Asian cookbook called "The Practical Encyclopedia of Asian Cooking". They explain the regional similarities & differences, but organize recipes by type like most cookbooks. I believe it covers Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and a few other regions. I want to get a copy of it, but I've just been lusting after it in the bookstore. icon_smile.gif

    Edited to correct title and add link.

    Kate, the book I've got is "Mediterranean Cookery" by Claudia Roden (1990). This book is out of print but sells on Amazon through their used book marketplace.

    There is also "The New Book of Middle Eastern Food" (2000) an updated edition of an earlier title (1972). I do not know if the text was Americanized for this edition or not. You may still have to deal aubergines and tinned meat. icon_biggrin.gif

    HTH.

    Edited because I had the wrong title for the book I've got at home. The 2000 title is still what I'd recommend, unless you are able to find one of the two out of print books at a used booksellers.
