Feasts from the Middle East

Tony Kitous

ISBN 9780008248345

A celebration of authentic Middle Eastern food, Feasts from the Middle East is packed with over 100 deliciously fresh, fragrant and flavourful dishes,inspired by the souks of Lebanon.

Fast, fresh, affordable, and delicious Middle Eastern food for the mass market from one of the fastest-growing, most exciting Lebanese restaurant brands in the UK.

With Feasts from the Middle East, we want to recreate the excitement and buzz of the Wagamama and Leon cookbooks, and use a growing, cool restaurant brand to create a cookery bestseller.

Comptoir Libanais are expanding their brand outside of London to include branches in Manchester, Bath, Leeds, Reading, Oxford and Exeter. They will have 30 restaurants by the time the book releases.

The founder of Comptoir Libanais, Tony Kitous, is a fantastic ambassador for the brand with bags of authenticity, drive and passion, and an extraordinary back-story: arriving in London aged 18 with just £70 in his pocket; he now employs 1,000 people in the UK.

The Author

Tony KitousTony Kitous arrived in London for the first time on August 6, 1988, aged 18. The self-styled Algerian “street boy” had just £70 in his pocket and was meant to be on holiday with a school friend, but instead, he spent his first night in Victoria coach station, and lived off chocolate for the first fortnight. More than 29 years later, the owner of the Comptoir Libanais canteen and delicatessen chain has 24 branches in London and across the UK, and employs 1,000 staff. They are part of a restaurant empire that encompasses three Shawa – Lebanese grill outlets, as well as Levant on Wigmore Street and Kenza in the city of London.
