One of the most common things you’ll hear before a meal in Lebanon is, “Please,
come, the table is ready”. This is a warm invitation that is readily welcomed, because
Lebanese cuisine is more than just a collection of dishes - it is a festival of
delicious appetizers, rich appealing tastes, enticing colours and warm hospitality.
From the evergreen mountains to fields of Lebanon, each region brings its own unique
flavours that transcend borders within the country and across the world. So it doesn’t
matter how big the table is, a Lebanese mezze can pack a lot within a little!
Made in Lebanon, enjoyed across the world. Irresistible, healthy and universally
loved, Lebanese cuisine is tempting, tantalizing and offers a truly sensational
experience of taste and aroma. Fresh vegetables and ingredients; tabouleh, fattoush
with olive oil, homos with tahini, eggplant paste, green beans, okra with tomato
and garlic sauce, kidney beans, foul modamas… the list goes on and on. A typical
spread would also include kebbeh, shish tawook, kaftah, freekeh of all kinds with
chicken, beef or vegetables, shish barak, mojadara, sayadiyah – a combination of
lip-smacking taste and health-friendly dishes. But that’s not all, wait till sweets
are served – every bite inspires another!
Besides being delightfully delicious and absolutely healthy, presentation plays
a prominent part in Lebanese cuisine. From fantastic mezzes to appetizing dishes,
every spread brings out the very essence of the cuisine. So, if you sit to a Lebanese
table and take the first bite, the sights, sounds and aromas are sure to put you
into the mood for some fun with friends and family.
