​​In Abundance, you will find more than 165 Mediterranean recipes, each accompanied by an introduction, photographs, nutritional facts, and recipe symbols to quickly identify recipes that are gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan.

Prepare to discover both traditional recipes such as Seafood and Chicken Paella (Spain), Chicken with Olives and Preserved Lemons (Morocco), and Pancakes Stuffed with Cream (Atayef Asafiri – Middle East), and novel creations that accommodate today’s ingredients and global health trends such as Soy Patties (Soja Falafel), Parsley and Lentil Salad (Tabbouleh with Lentils), and Pomegranate Cheesecake. Browse through educational glossaries of food terms, herbs, and spices, as well as comprehensive sections on measurements and food substitutions – written to facilitate understanding and applicability of the recipes, regardless of one’s location.

Authored by alumni volunteers and friends of the American University of Beirut (AUB) as they celebrated AUB’s 150th anniversary, Abundance stands out as a unique compendium that extends well beyond simply providing recipes.

Founded in Lebanon in 1866, AUB is an institution of higher learning founded to provide excellence in education, to participate in the advancement of knowledge through research, and to serve the peoples of the Middle East and beyond. Chartered in New York State in 1863, AUB bases its educational philosophy, standards, and practices on the American liberal arts model of higher education. AUB’s motto as engraved on its Main Gate states “That they may have life and have it more abundantly”.

​All proceeds from the sale of Abundance will benefit the student-led Food Distribution Initiative at AUB's Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service (CCECS) to support needy families in Lebanon.​
