If you’re not Middle-Eastern but are just interested in learning to cook these great tasting dishes it is also perfect for you.  This app will make it extremely easy to learn and try all the hundreds of different dishes available in the app.  Many people who are not as familiar with this type of food will love the full color images of every recipe.  It allows people to choose dishes which they are comfortable with at first before expanding into any of the more difficult dishes.

In addition to being an excellent app for learning to cook, it is really a well made app which is very intuitive and easy to use.  Simply sliding your finger to scroll through the different pictures of the recipes will let you go through everything in each category.  A single tap is enough to open up and see the full recipe and dragging up down to view the rest of the page.  From the time you open this app you’ll enjoy its ease of use and extremely helpful and detailed recipes for each of the delicious creations!
