August 13, 2016 - Kibbee 'n' Spice and Everything Nice: Popular and Easy Recipes for the Lebanese and American Family, a new book by Janet Kalush, has been released by J Lorraine Co.

The goal of Kibbee 'n' Spice is to make Lebanese cooking accessible to everyone.

For Lebanese-Americans who want to get in touch with their heritage, for those who love the food but find it too time consuming and difficult to make at home, and for those looking for something different this is the book for you!

To help understand the cuisine, there is a section called "Things You Should Know" that goes over the ingredients that are most used. Nutritional values charts are provided with each recipe, along with definitions of Lebanese ingredients, and a measurement conversion chart.

"While examining the recipes in this book, my ample Semitic nose went on a journey of wonderful aromas and tastes from my childhood. I hope Janet's cookbook will take you on a similar journey of great memories and delicious food. Allah Mah Uck (God Be With You)."
-Jamie Farr, Television and Movie Actor

"This book is well-researched and full of a wide range of interesting recipes. Some of my favorite dishes are contained in this collection. Who knew you could do so much with yogurt?"
-Robin Swartz, Food Editor, Lansing State Journal

"I believe that you have inherited from your fore-fathers a dream, a song, a prophecy which you can proudly lay as a gift upon the lap of America."
-Khalil Gibra, Lebanese Poet
