The cuisines covered include those of Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and the Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Egypt, Yemen, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman; Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Influenced by the Persian, Islamic, and Ottoman Empires, these country's common culinary tradition also reveals the legacy of the Byzantine and Roman empires.

Each ingredient is broken down in sections on descriptions and tastes of the spices, historical background, and cultivation or manufacture methods.
