Flavours of Lebanon | Event Annoucement!


This month I am happy and excited host my favourite cuisine, Lebanese. This cuisine has many vegetarian dishes and it became my favourite cuisine when we stayed at Panama City. There were many Lebanese Restuarants. Thanks Nayna for giving me this opportunity for Guest hosting her event.


We are now on our culinary journey to Lebanon in the “Flavors of Series 2 around Asia” by simply.food guest hosted here at Sara's Corner.


Lebanese Republic is a country of East Mediterranean/Middle East. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south. Lebanon's location at the crossroads of the Mediterranean Basin and the Arabian hinterland has dictated its rich history, and shaped a cultural identityof religious and ethnic diversity.


Lebanese cuisine includes an abundance of starches, fruits, vegetables,fresh fish 
and seafood; animal fats are consumed sparingly. It also includes copious amounts of garlic and olive oil, often seasoned by lemon juice, olive oil, herbs, garlic and lemon are typical flavours found in the Lebanese diet. Most often foods are either grilled, baked or sautéed in olive oil; butter or cream is rarely used other than in a few desserts. Vegetables are often eaten raw or pickled as well as cooked. Herbs and spices are used and the freshness of ingredients is important. The coffee served in Lebanon is sometimes a variation of Turkish coffee, but a dark type of coffee is the main type served.(courtesy wiki.org)
